In the seaside village of Vadapattinam, 85km south of Chennai, children in the village, who often pick up harmful habits such as smoking, chewing tobacco and alcohol at a shockingly young age. Among them was a boy called Kandan (name changed), only 11 years old but known to consume. Last Sunday, he became the villain of the village, bringing home the dangerous effect that years of social neglect can cause to a community, reports Times News Network.
Around 11 in the morning, Kandan took a seven-year-old girl, studying in Class 2, to a neem tree by the lake and tried to rape her. To make sure she did not scream, he forcefully held a piece of cloth over her mouth. As a result, the girl died of suffocation. The boy was said to be under the influence of alcholol.
When he realised that the girl was dead, Kandan picked up a thorn and poked her right leg at four places to make it look like a snake bite. However, doubts about his claim arose once the girl’s parents found injuries on her private parts. But they decided not to raise the issue and buried the girl instead. On Monday, however, they changed their mind and lodged a complaint with the Koovathur police. Police, while visiting the spot, found a few teeth of the girl under the tree. They questioned Kandan, who eventually confessed to the crime.
