COIMBATORE: The condition of the two minor girls, who were raped by a 22-year-old history-sheeter, was getting better, sources at the Pollachi government hospital said on Sunday.

“One of the girls had suffered deep cuts in her private parts. The doctors monitoring the patients has said that it would not cause her any trouble in future. Their condition is stable and they would be discharged within five days,” sources said.

V S Paramasivam, treasurer of Tamil Nadu Tribal Association, told Express that the girls were being given treatment at par with any private hospital.

“Though the accused has been arrested, the police are not giving the victims any peace. They girls need to relax,” he said.

Demanding that only women personnel question the victims, Paramasivam urged the police to involve the kin or the members of Mathar Sangam during the process.

Meanwhile, Kongu Nadu Makkal Desiya Katchi (KNMK) would take out an awareness rally on Tuesday from Mahalingapuram roundtana to the sub-collector office. 

“The police should take strict action against the accused Veerasamy. Police should take steps to remove liquor shops as the accused had perpetrated the crime in an inebriated state,” a release from the party said.

The party also wanted the police to strengthen security at bus stands, railway stations and other public places at nights to prevent such incidents.

The two girls were allegedly kidnapped from a home run by the TELC in Pollachi on the intervening night between Wednesday and Thursday.  Veerasamy (22), a history-sheeter, who was arrested on Saturday morning, had allegedly raped the girls on the terrace of a commercial building.
