Kerala is touted as ‘God’s own country’ in the tourism promotion ads but, it is now revealed that it is ‘Devil’s own country’. In this Southern state of India, a 14-year old girl was thrown to the wolves by her own father. She had to service as many as 100 men. She is now in hospital being treated for venereal disease.
The girl hails from Paravoor in Ernakulum district and she had confided to a relative about her miserable plight – that was three months ago when the police complaint was lodged.
Oomen Chandy, the Chief Minister of Kerala has instructed his police to trace the culprits and has promised that they would be punished. The police have fanned out to neighboring states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to locate the miscreants.
