Boy who raped 7-year-old sister sentenced


A minor boy who raped his 7-year-old sister after watching pornography with friends last year has avoided a custodial sentence.

Now, 13, the boy pleaded guilty to rape, indecent assault and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, reported BBC.

The court has imposed a 12-month referral order and he is currently living away from his family. Social workers are attempting to return him to the family soon.

The judge who sentenced him described the boy as “unsophisticated” and “immature” and said that detaining the youngster would expose him to “hardened and sophisticated” youth offenders.

The boy has promised he would not repeat it.

Meanwhile, his sister was quoted as saying, “I want him to go to our house so I can play games with him.”

Filipina maid in Kuwait says she is kidnapped

A Filipina housemaid is believed to have been kidnapped by a Bangladeshi man in Kuwait while she was throwing garbage just outside her employer’s house.

Her Kuwait employer told police that the girl vanished two days ago and that he had received a phone call from her saying she was abducted by a Bangladeshi man.

“Her employer told police that his maid said she is locked up in an apartment near a private hospital and a large Asian workers’ housing complex,” the Kuwaiti Arabic language daily Al Anba said without mentioning how the maid made the call.
