Two-year-old child sexually assaulted

Crime: A 39-year-old man was detained on Saturday for sexually assaulting a 2-year-old female child at Babesa.

According to health officials, the parents of the victim brought the child to the emergency room at the national referral hospital suspecting a case of sexual assault around 5pm on the same day.

Senior forensic health assistant with the hospital, Kuenzang Norbu, said that multiple lacerations around the anal region of the victim were found during investigation. Bloodstains in the diaper and adult pubic hairs were also discovered from the victim.

Kuenzang Norbu said that on investigation, samples of bloodstains were also discovered on the pants of the suspect. He said that the suspect was also found under the influence of alcohol.

Physical evidences suggest that the man had sexually assaulted the child. “We have enough evidences to prove that the victim has been sexually assaulted,” said Kuenzang Norbu. “However, as of now we cannot guarantee that the crime was committed by the man because of the lack of equipment for DNA testing in the hospital.”

According to sources, the suspect took the child from the father saying that they were going out for a walk. The suspect is believed to have involved in several similar cases before also. The suspect was a neighbour of the family.

Sources said that the suspect was on the verge of fleeing when he heard that the case was reported to police. However, police were able to reach on time and arrested the man.

The child is in a stable condition and has been discharged.

    My suggestion that the laws of justice in the court of order must upgraded and updated their own country of Bhutan this seriously offended crime case for the Two-year-old child sexually assaulted. This was too much already and to protect their country of the bhutanese to avoid such cases raped occurs again in the future!

    Therefore, must enforced to use the laws of constitutions to cut off his penis !!! This is my best advise for your bhutan country to prevent those victims will rape again more without seriously cut off his penis!!! Don’t you all agreed with me as heart conscience and to be fair judgement to protect your own country name and damaged also those who have children of their own in the future and present too???

    If you put the victim to jail for few years is not enough of punishment at all for a terrible occurs case been raped just imaged a small young child 2 years old only!! He will repeat it again in the future ….

    It is really a disheartening news which makes me to feel ashamed to be born as a man. What if that is his own daughter. I can’t imagine to read such news from the land of GNH country. If such crimes is to happen repeatedly the law amenders have to amend according to the crimes and the umplementers have to start immediately, laws should be life imprisonment for such evil minded I suggest. We should not give him second chance to see our peaceful country.

    Let Bhutan show courage by standing with the Victims against the perpetrators.
    PERPETRATORS for some of the serious crimes of the sort mentioned here should be shot in OPEN VIEW of the public to dissuade the courage for committing crimes. I think the Organisation for International Human Rights will respect the stand of local government in such cases by paying for the bullet used to remove stain from society.

    Is it that Bhutanese has too much rights about inmates that people do not fear committing crimes or our education system be it at school or home has failed to educate the people to respect at-least universal human values. What happened to our “ZA CHA DRO SUM”? Respecting the elders and minors, protecting the weak…. seems do not mean anything nowadays i think.

    By looking at recent incidents, may be parliamentarians need to review laws on child sex abuse and manslaughter and propose harsher penalties for these offenders. May be introduce capital punishment too. At-least if these offenders do not respect our values, if such laws exist, am sure they would think thousand times before harming the harmless. May not serve long term purpose, but definitely will reduce the offenders.

    This makes me feel ashamed to call myself a man! What an insane and cowardly behavior! What is becoming of men these days? How can we ensure the safety of our children when predators are just within the neighborhood? The law should definitely punish the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
