Woman arrested in POCSO case in Telangana

In a rare case, a woman was arrested under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act in Telangana’s Siddipet district for allegedly sexually exploiting a 16-year-old teenager, police said on Saturday.

The 27-year-old woman had been staying in a rented house in Siddipet with her husband and two children for the past three years, a police statement said.

The woman had induced the teen, who is the son of the landlord, to have a physical relationship with her, the report said.

She persuaded the teen to take cash and gold jewelry from his home. They then left for Chennai in January and have both been staying there since then.

The teenager’s mother had complained to police about her son’s disappearance and expressed suspicion of the woman.

When the woman and teen threw away their phones, tracking their location proved difficult, police sources said.

When the teenager recently called his mother, police were able to track their location in Chennai.

After realizing that a police investigation was underway, the woman left the teenager at his house in Siddipet on June 11.

Based on the information provided by the teen, the woman was arrested and sent to judicial custody, the release said.

The teenager told police that they had stayed in a room in Chennai where the woman forced him to have a physical relationship with her. The woman had sold the gold jewelery brought by him in Chennai.
