ITANAGAR: The alleged rape and abuse of a minor domestic help by a government employee, identified as Aka Kalung, at Roing in Lower Dibang Valley district of Arunachal Pradesh for years together, has sent shock waves in the north eastern hill state.
According sources, Kalung would sexually abuse the teenage girl, force her to undergo pregnancy tests, and feed her contraceptives.
He would compel the minor to perform urine tests on a regular basis and would offer her medication after sex. After each examination, he would give her some pills again. He also threatened her not to tell anything to anyone.

The domestic help from Nepal was reportedly abused psychologically, emotionally and physically for years by the family.
When the girl complained about the abuse to her parents, they showed little interest and labeled her as mentally ill. The girl’s parents had sent her to live with the family as domestic help for Rs 1,500 a month.
The 15-year-old girl described how the accused, Aka Kalung, and his wife Jaya Kalung, tortured her. Kalung is on bail, sources said.
She detailed the most recent incident in her complaint, during which she eventually fled the home.
The family threw her out of the house and told her to stay outside after she refused to wear a mask. She took it as an opportunity to get rid of the family.
When Jaya discovered her husband abusing the child, she beat her up and screamed obscenities at her instead of scolding her husband.
According to a representative of a childcare facility, the minor was unable to remember certain facts as a result of the continuous physical and emotional violence she had endured.
He is stated to have chastised the administration for not prioritising the case at the outset, claiming that the accused had violated the POCSO Act’s provisions. “There was almost no vital detail when she filed the FIR for the first time. The cops wanted to leave out all the important information,” the person added.
He went on to say that since Kalung is a government employee, the authorities were also trying to protect him. Furthermore, no local media outlet reported the incident.
Meanwhile, sources told InsideNE that a meeting is convened tomorrow where representatives from National Commission for Protection of Child Rights are likely to attend.
