Doctor detained for rape of minor

Chennai: The city police detained a doctor for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl, who was forced into flesh trade by a woman and her boyfriend who lured her promising to get her a job in Arani near Thiruvannmalai district.
Jayaprakasam and his assistant Pandian have been taken into custody and police are conducting interrogations to nab their associates. Jayaprakasam was employed in a government hospital in Arani.
A senior police officer said, “We have verified the veracity of the arrested Jayaprakasam. He has completed MBBS and was working at the government hospital.”
During questioning, Jayaprakasam told the investigating officers that he was not aware that the girl is a juvenile and the woman Chitra and her boyfriend Suresh introduced the girl to him as a prostitute. Police are yet to arrest Chitra and her accomplices.
Chitra, a family friend of the victim, had promised to get her a job but instead forced her into flesh trade with the help of her boyfriend after detaining the victim at a house in Arani.
The girl was rescued by a Kumar, who is known to Rani, the victim’s mother. He handed the girl over to Rani last week. Rani’s husband Arumugam, employed as a coolie at Koyambedu market, died due to an illness recently. Rani and her elder daughter stayed in a house in Koyambedu, while her younger daughter stayed at a government hostel in Valasaravakkam studying in a school nearby.
Rani lodged a complaint, flanked by her lawyer Senthil, to the Chennai city police commissioner A K Viswanathan on Thursday. The petition was forwarded to the Anna Nagar deputy commissioner of police Dr M Sudhakar and subsequently the Thirumangalam all women police personnel registered a case based on Rani’s complaint.
According to the complainant, the girl was lured by Chitra who promised to get her a job to lead a decent life. Believing her words, the girl, who wanted to relieve her mother’s burden, agreed to go for the job. Chitra asked Suresh to take the girl to Arani. They arranged for a job at a textile shop and provided accommodation at Chitra’s house.
As Chitra’s husband works as a lorry driver, he was away from home most days. Chitra invited Suresh to her house where he sexually assaulted the girl. After Suresh repeatedly exploited her for several days, he introduced her to his girlfriend Kotteswari who took the victim to many places to stay with other people including lorry drivers. As the girl suddenly fell ill, Suresh, Chitra and Kotteshwari took her to a hospital where the doctor Jayaprakasam examined her. Later, Suresh forced the girl to stay with the doctor for a few days before getting treated.
