In a strange case, a woman was apprehended for being in a relationship with a man. A 22-year-old mother was arrested for sexually assaulting a 17-year-old. It’s another thing that this 17-year-old happened to be her ‘husband.’ At the time of her arrest, she kept claiming that their relationship was consensual and the couple has a five-month-old daughter.

The woman was arrested under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. She has now moved the court for bail. Earlier, she was allowed to keep her daughter with her in Byculla jail.

As per a report which appeared in the The Times of India, the police complaint filed by the youth’s mother alleged that the woman had ‘enticed’ her son. The ‘marriage’ took place on November 8, 2017.

The woman tried to commit suicide causing mental stress to the boy, who left his parents to be with her

As per her statement on December 2017, the mother said on November 23, the woman had come to her residence accompanied by her parents and brother.

The report quoted the youth’s mother as saying that the woman claimed that she had married her son and would now reside in the house. When she and her husband opposed this, the woman abused them and threatened to harm herself. She said after the woman left, her son too left home and refused to return. The mother claimed that the woman was married twice before and divorced.

She further stated that her son and the woman had been in contact for two years. Ever since then his behaviour had changed. The mother alleged that her son had informed her and his father that the woman had been threatening to commit suicide if he stopped meeting her.
She claimed the woman had even attempted to end her life by pouring kerosene and consuming a disinfectant. This caused mental stress to her son who failed his Class X exams as well.
