New Delhi: The Supreme Court has dismissed the plea by a minor boy against his biological mother, who was given clean chit in Kadakkavoor POCSO case.
The ruling is by the bench comprising judges Surya Kant and JB Pardiwala.
The complainant had approached the apex court seeking dismissal of the Special Investigation Team's report which reported the mother, who was named as an accused in the case, is innocent. He also appealed to the court to quash the bail granted to the mother. The boy contended that the High Court passed the order without hearing his side in the matter.
Earlier, senior IPS officer Dr Divya Gopinath had probed the case of alleged sexual abuse of the 13-year-old boy by his 35-year-old mother. Later Dr. Divya submitted a report before the High Court which noted that fake allegations were raised against the woman. The High Court then passed the order to quash the case. Following this, the Thiruvananthapuram POCSO court ended all proceedings regarding the case.
Meanwhile, the apex court in the last hearing enquired whether the father has any hand in the minor’s move. However, counsel for the boy informed the court that the plea was filed when he was under Child Welfare Committee protection. The new development comes in this context.
