The alleged video of the incident depicted the boy being compelled to crouch under threat of a knife, and he was forced to lick shoes and engage in unnatural sexual acts, according to the police.

The incident was brought to attention on Sunday night when another friend of the victim sent the video to the boy’s mother, who then filed a complaint with the police. The accused individuals have been arrested and are currently being interrogated.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Ankit Chauhan stated that the accused, aged between 12 and 14, carried out the crime to intimidate the victim after a disagreement with him a few days earlier. A senior police officer mentioned that the accused threatened the victim with severe consequences if he disclosed the incident to anyone. Due to fear of retaliation, the victim kept his ordeal hidden from his parents.

They arranged for the boy to undergo a medical examination and receive counselling.

Such traumatic experiences can have significant psychological effects on the victim, including feelings of humiliation, shame, and powerlessness. It can lead to long-term emotional distress, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Victims may also experience difficulties in trusting others and forming healthy relationships. Seeking support from trusted individuals and professionals can be crucial in coping with such trauma.

Parents can create an environment where children feel comfortable talking about their experiences and concerns and encourage them to share any incidents of bullying or discomfort with their friends. Emphasising the importance of treating others with respect and kindness , encouraging a child to stand up for their friends and speak out against bullying behaviour can prevent these scenarios. Keeping an eye on a child’s social interactions and observing any changes in their behaviour or mood that may indicate they are being bullied or are involved in bullying behaviour themselves.
Teaching your child about personal boundaries and the importance of respecting others’ boundaries, helping them recognize when their own boundaries are being crossed and how to assertively communicate their needs is very important now-a-days.
