9-yr-old molested in BMC school

A nine-year-old girl was allegedly molested by an unidentified man on the second floor of her school in Shivaji Nagar Friday afternoon.

Shivaji Nagar police said the class II student of a BMC-run school saw the accused loitering on the second floor. He rushed towards her, dragged her into a toilet, touched her inappropriately and fled.

"It was over within a couple of minutes. Prima facie he was not a school employee. A lot of people have been entering the school to register for Aadhaar cards. He could have been one," said Senior Police Inspector Radheshyam Agrawal of Shivaji Nagar police station.

Police said the sudden assault disoriented the girl and she did not inform anyone in school. She told her parents who registered a police complaint on Friday night. Based on description given by the girl, police are searching for a bearded man aged around 40. The girl has said he was in a formal shirt and trousers.
