Malap­pu­ram: Po­lice have booked a 36-year-old woman for al­legedly rap­ing her nineyear-old nephew in Malap­pu­ram dis­trict’s Then­hip­palam area for the last one year.

The crime came to light af­ter the boy re­vealed it to a doc­tor, who in turn, alerted Child­line au­thor­i­ties. Child­line of­fi­cials recorded the child’s state­ment and for­warded a com­plaint to po­lice.

Child­line of­fi­cials said the boy was sub­jected to sex­ual abuse for more than a year. “The pro­longed sex­ual as­sault has affected his men­tal health. The ac­cused is his aunt and lives near his house,” said Child­line (Malap­pu­ram) co­or­di­na­tor An­war Karakkadan.

“We have learnt that there was a dis­pute be­tween the fam­ily of the sur­vivor and ac­cused. We have to check whether the al­le­ga­tion is linked to the dis­pute,” he said.
