Falak case: Father of teenaged girl arrested

The father of a teenaged girl, who got a battered two-year-old admitted in AIIMS, and two others were arrested here for allegedly abandoning her and forcing her into prostitution, police said on Wednesday.

The 15-year-old girl was in news after she brought baby Falak, who was allegedly beaten up by her, to AIIMS for treatment claiming that she was her mother.

The girl had eloped from her house alleging that her father used to physically torture her.

She eloped with Rajkumar, who entrusted the girl with Falak two months ago.

"We have arrested three persons - her father, a woman, who forced her into prostitution, and another man. They have been charged with various sections, including abandoning her and forcing her into prostitution," a senior police official said.

Rajkumar is still on the run.

The Child Welfare Committee, which is looking into the case of the teenaged girl who got the baby admitted, had said that a case should be registered against her father.

Sources said the committee was of the view that a case should be registered against the teenager's father for cruelty and abuse.

It also suggested that a separate case also should be registered against four persons who allegedly sexually abused the teenaged girl.

The committee said after talking to a counsellor, the teenager has told them that her father was in jail for 8 years for murdering her aunt and the father, who was present at the hearing, confirmed it.

Investigators had earlier this week identified a crucial link and a woman named Lakshmi is being questioned.

The baby Falak was admitted to AIIMS with severe injuries and is battling for life after the teenaged girl, who was looking after her after her boyfriend left the girl with her, got her admitted.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
