Save the Women, save the children watch - Two get 4-year rigorous imprisonment for molesting minor girls

Published on 12 Feb 2018 by Tushar

A Thane court has sentenced two men to four years’ rigorous imprisonment for molesting two minor girls residing in their neighbourhood.

They were booked under IPC sections 354 (molestation) and 363 (kidnapping), and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Judge Khalipe rejected the submission of the defence counsels. She observed that the prosecution proved the accused forcibly took the two girls in the auto-rickshaw with an intention to kidnap them while they were playing.

They lured the girls with an offer of ice creams and molested them, the judge said. “Considering the nature of the offence, I do not find any mitigating circumstance for a lenient view,” she said in her order last week.
