They took him to the washroom later and sodomised him in turns,” the father said in the FIR.
“Each time they sexually abused my son, they forced him to take drugs. They threatened him of dire consequences if he reported the incident to anyone,” the man wrote in the FIR. The abuse continued until July 26 when the boy left and told his parents about what he was going through, the father said in his complaint to the police.
