KALPETTA: MP P K Sreemathi on Tuesday said seven inmates of a Muslim orphanage at Muttil in Wayanad were undergoing sexual exploitation at the hands of the accused for the last two months.

"The girls were lured first after being offered sweets. The accused started sexually abusing them after taking their nude pictures. They were threatened with dire consequences if they disclosed it to any one," she said after meeting the victims.

Sreemathi demanded all the inmates of the orphanage be given counselling to know whether they faced a similar situation. "The accused even threatened the girls when an identification parade was organised by the police," she added.

The sexual abuse case of the seven girl inmates of a Muslim orphanage at Muttil in Wayanad district came to light when the orphanage administrator lodged a complaint with the police. Police registered a case against six local persons, based on the complaint, which submitted that the girls were sexually abused by the gang at the shop situated near the orphanage for over two months.
