Role-players commended for assisting in rape investigation

We refer to the article published last week in the Rising Sun headlined, “Man denied bail for stepdaughter’s rape.” We salute the sterling work and the professional investigative techniques displayed by Col Ellappen, who is the commanding officer of the Chatsworth SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS), investigating officers, Sgt Paul, Cnst Sibisi and Cnst Sewpersadh, in apprehending the stepfather who was wanted for raping his 13-year-old stepdaughter and arresting the mother for helping the suspect evade police.

We also commend the director of Chatsworth Child Welfare, Salochana Moodley, supervisor, Colleen and social worker, Samkar, for their professional approach in handling the matter and going beyond the call of duty to make sure that justice prevails.

Praise also goes to staff and board members of Kwaja Gareeb Nawaz, who displayed professional techniques in giving support to the victim, whose rights were violated and infringed by the man and her biological mother. She looked upon her mother and stepfather as role models and as people she could trust. We salute the Chatsworth SAPS, FCS Unit, and other role-players who brought the perpetrators to book.
