A Bharat Sevasharam monk was arrested and remanded in police custody for allegedly abusing minor boys in the ashram premises at Sahapur.
The 27-year-old monk was arrested under Section 377 of the IPC (unnatural offences) and Sections 12 and 8 of The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act Monday after a written complaint was filed against him by locals for allegedly abusing four boys, three of whom were minors, police said.
SP Kalyan Mukherjee confirmed confirmed his arrest. The monk was produced in a local court Wednesday, which remanded him in police custody for three days.
The minors reside in the ashram and study in a residential school under the supervision of the monks. Sangh sources said the monk was falsely implicated by locals with whom they had a land dispute.
