A boy was raped by his own mother in an attempt to cure him of homosexuality.
This disturbing revelation comes after a homosexual girl in a relationship with a woman was raped by her cousin to help make her straight.
Gay and lesbianism in india is punishable by law with up to ten years in prison. To ensure their children stick to conventional sexuality, indian parents encourage cousins, brothers and even mothers to rape their children if they indulge in these acts.
Fifteen of such cases have been reported within the past five years with possibilities of many more going unreported as some victims are afraid to speaking out.
