A Thane court has sentenced a 26-year-old man in Navi Mumbai to rigorous imprisonment for five years for sexually assaulting a minor girl in her home.

Thane District and Special Judge Ashutosh N Karmarkar last week convicted the man under The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act sections 7 and 9 (m) (sexual assault on a child below 12 years).

According to the prosecution, the girl, who was 10 and studying in Class 5, was alone at home in Navi Mumbai’s Pavane village when she was assaulted by the man on December 6, 2014.

The girl had gone out to fetch some water. When she returned home, the accused, who lived in the same neighbourhood, followed her inside and touched her inappropriately.

When the girl resisted, he pushed her to the ground.
