Six men have been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act for sexually abusing five minor girls in their farm, police said on Tuesday.

She also stated that "All the children were first taken to the child care centre 'Udhavum Karangal' and were later admitted to the Rajiv Gandhi Government Child Hospital for medical examination and treatment."

The men were sent to the government hospital after their arrest for COVID-19 tests.
