60-year-old arrested for molesting minor
RCF Police arrested a 60-year-old man Thursday for allegedly molesting a 11-year-old girl.
Kanwal Jaiswal has been booked under IPC as well as Protection Of Children from Sexual Offences Act (PCSOA), 2012.
Police said Jaiswal was an alcoholic. They said he was returning home after drinking at around 9.30 pm Thursday, when he saw the girl roaming the area.
"Jaiswal was seen leading the victim towards the railway tracks in the area by three men. They became suspicious when they saw him touching the girl inappropriately and rushed to her rescue. Jaiswal was overpowered, caught and handed over to police," senior inspector Dilip Yadav said.
Police have charged Jaiswal for molestation under Indian Penal Code and for sexual assault under PCSOA. Medical tests on the girl ruled out rape.
"The victim stays with her father and aunt, both of whom are out all day. As a result, locals told us, she and her two younger brothers are often seen roaming around alone," said a police officer.
