KOCHI: A 16-year-old girl was beaten up badly for complaining against a boy who allegedly went after her, wooing her. The victim is a native of Perumbavoor.
She was attacked by her neighbour Elson and his friends. Police have started inquiry against him.
The girl and her parents lodged a complaint the other day with Kodanad police, after they developed fear for Elson who used to follow her persistently and woo her. To avenge this act, Elson and his friends barged into the girl’s house, beat her up and caused injuries using blade. All over her body there are blade injury marks. She is under treatment in Perumbavoor Taluk hospital.
At the time of the attack, her parents were not in the house. But at this time the girl’s sister and grandfather was there.
The police said none of them saw Elson attacking the girl. There are allegations that a complaint given earlier by the victim was not considered seriously by the police.
