My daughter, who is 12, is already planning a trip to her aunt’s house in Uttar Pradesh’s Jharkhand district.
She has asked me to let her stay in the house for three days, to get used to her surroundings, and to keep the temperature below freezing.
I told her that it is a safe and warm place and I will keep her warm during her stay.
My daughter, a student of history and languages, has always wanted to go out camping with her boyfriend.
Her aunt has given permission to stay in a rented house in Jharkshedpur.
A local youth, Jharshenpur resident Ramesh Yadav, has also asked the school principal to allow the child to stay there for three nights.
Yadav, who was born in the state, is a member of the BHIM group that is working towards ensuring the protection of young girls.
He said, My son and I had planned to visit the house in the evening, but our car broke down and we couldn’t make it to the place in time.
The family of the boy, who has autism, had to pay Rs 5,000 to rent a vehicle and hire a bus.
The parents had to drive two hours to reach the place.
It is not the first time the girl has been asked to stay at a family’s home.
Earlier this month, a girl in Uttarakhpur was allegedly assaulted by a man who had a gun in his hand.
