In a horrific incident stinking of severe perversion, a 60-year-old man molested and then inserted needles in the body of a 3-year-old girl at his house at Nadiara village of Purulia on July 11. While the girl, who is critical, has been admitted to SSKM hospital in Kolkata, the police have launched a massive manhunt for the man, Sanatan Thakur, who has since been absconding. Incidentally Thakur used to live in the house alone.

According to the complaint filed by the mother with the police, the girl and her mother stayed at the house of the accused where she worked as a domestic help. On that day she heard a heart-rending scream and on rushing in a room she saw her daughter writhing in pain with blood oozing out from several wounds of her body. The girl soon fell unconscious and the mother and other local people took them first to a hospital at Purulia but later as her condition worsened she was brought to Kolkata and admitted to SSKM hospital.

The police also suspected that it was not one day that such case happened but the hapless girl was subjected to regular sexual assaults by the old man as her body bore injury marks at several places. ``It is an extreme case of perversion. The administration took the girl to Kolkata for treatment as her condition was going for We have launched a massive manhunt for the man and the man will soon be brought to book,'' Alakesh Prasad Roy, district magistrate, Purulia told Echo of India.
