A 63-year-old music teacher arrested for molesting a minor student in Assam according to reports. The mother of the child lodged a complaint against the accused.
The mother of the minor girl described the incident and said that her 9-year-old daughter was allegedly being molested for several days at accused person’s residence. The minor girl was reportedly threatened by the accused against revealing the incidents to anyone.
In her statement, the mother said that the minor girl suddenly refused to go to the music class taken by the 63-year-old accused man. When her mother persuaded her to attend the classes, the girl started crying. She also complained of pain while urinating.
After the minor’s mother spoke to her about the pain, she opened up and informed her about the entire incident. The parents then decided to lodge a complaint against the music teacher. According to reports, the parents visited the teacher before filing the complaint to talk to him. He allegedly admitted to his crime and also offered them money to keep the matter a secret.
She added, “We trusted the person because he is an aged man and also a music teacher. He not only physically assaulted my child but also traumatized her mentally by constantly threatening her. As a mother, I don’t want this to happen to any other child, we demand strong action against the person.”
Barsha Borgohain who is the Officer-in-charge of Rongpur Police Patrol Post confirmed that he received an FIR lodged by the mother and immediately arrested the accused from his home. He said in his statement, “This is a sensitive matter and we are investigating it thoroughly. The accused will be produced before the court tomorrow.” The man has been arrested under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
