Atul Biswas raped an 11-year-old minor girl, who happened to be his own relative, in Assam at Ramnathpara under the Tamarhat police station. The order was passed by P Kataki, Additional Sessions Judge cum Special Judge POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act), Dhubri.
"Before parting with the judgement, with deep concern, we may point out that though all sexual assaults on female children are not reported and do not come to light yet there is an alarming and shocking increase of sexual offences committed on children. This is due to the reasons that children are ignorant of the act of rape and are not able to offer resistance and become easy prey for lusty brutes who display the unscrupulous, deceitful and insidious art of luring female children and young girls. Therefore, such offenders who are a menace to the civilized society should be mercilessly and inexorably punished in the severest terms," said the order of the Special Judge (POCSO).
