A man forced his acquaintances' 10-year-old son to oral sex.

In the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a court reduced the term of imprisonment for a man who forced a 10-year-old boy to oral sex.

This was reported by BBC-Ukraine.

At first, the rapist was sentenced to 10 years in prison. However, after filing an appeal, the court decided that the alleged violence was not too serious, so it reduced the term to 7 years.

The crime took place back in 2016. The intruder came to the house of his acquaintances. He took the child to a local temple, where he was raped in an unnatural way. The rapist gave the victim 20 rupees (27 cents) for silence, and also threatened with violence.

The judge's decision angered ordinary citizens. India is one of the anti-leaders in terms of the number of rapes, especially of minors. In 2020, 43,000 violations of the law on the protection of children from sexual violence were registered there.

Despite the widespread belief that girls are victims, more than half of the victims interviewed are boys.

Recall that in India, 26 people were arrested for the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl.
