The present paper examined the modus operandi adopted by the perpetrators and the relationship between the perpetrators and victim of sexual violence in Arunachal Pradesh. To draw the result, the authors analyzed the cases of sexual violence against children reported in English daily – The Arunachal Times from January 2020 to October 20, 2021 supplemented by personal interview of acquaintances of the victims for two cases.
