Singapore jails, canes Indian for sex with minor
Singapore: A 31-year old Indian was sentenced to 13 years in jail and 12 strokes of the cane for having sex with a minor, according to a media report.
Udhayakumar Dhakshinamoorthy courted a 12-yearold girl with gifts and called her his “wife”, grooming her to engage in sexual acts with him between September and December 2016, reported The New Paper.
Four other charges were taken into consideration during his sentencing at the High Court.
The offence came to light after the convict’s pregnant adult girlfriend discovered a video of the naked minor girl on his phone.
