Sleepless nights for police due to minors in love

According to a report in TNIE, minor girls who are in ‘love’ with younger boys are giving sleepless nights to police and parents in Tiruvallur district as Tiruvallur police had tackled as many as 40 cases of missing minor girls in the last four months in the district.


Tiruvallur Superintendent of Police R Sibi Chakravarthy was quoted as saying in TNIE that there has been a rise in the elopement of minor girls in the district. “It shot up to 15% in the last five years. These girls are either studying Class X or XII,” says Chakravarthy, adding that 34 cases have been cracked.“Of the 34 cases that we have cracked, 20 are about missing girls, who eloped with their young lovers, who are either dropouts or jobless,” the SP reportedly said.


“The police department approaches this issue through the All Women Police Station where the woman police inspectors meet girls in every village once a week and enlighten them on the POCSO Act and consequences of eloping,” Chakravarthy allegedly said.
