Fake POCSO case: Woman booked for molesting minor son acquitted
Thiruvananthapuram: A woman who was booked in a fake POCSO case finally got justice after the POCSO court here acquitted her from the charges of raping her minor son. The police arrested her in December 2020 after a complaint alleged that she had molested her 13-year-old son for three years.
Earlier, a special investigation team headed by IG Arshitha Attalloor had found that fake allegations were levelled against the mother. Based on the findings submitted by the team, the court on Saturday dismissed the legal proceedings against the woman.
Meanwhile, the court also dismissed the plea of the woman's husband against the SIT report.
In the complaint, the child complained that his mother sexually abused him between the period of 2017 and 2020.
Based on this, Kadakkavoor police registered a case and arrested the mother on December 28, 2020. She also served a month of jail term following the arrest.
Later, a special team was assigned to probe the case as per the directions of the High Court. The team found that her son’s statement and the complaint lodged were fabricated.
