# Headlines Tops

On the 11th of June 2020, Thursday, an 80-year-old man was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two minor girls in Mumbai. A case was registered after the mother of the two girls – aged 12 years and 7 years – approached the VB Nagar police.

The police said that the accused stayed at a shanty and the victims stayed nearby. “The accused stayed with his family but just days before the lockdown was imposed, he had sent his family back to his native place in Uttar Pradesh…. In the meantime, the victim’s family was helping him with food and tea,” said a police officer.

The victims had four more sisters. The food would be handed to the accused by any of the six daughters of the complainant. On Thursday, the two sisters went to the accused’s shanty to give him tea.

“One of their neighbors happened to see the two girls naked inside the shanty of the senior citizen. The neighbor confronted the accused and raised an alarm for help,” said the police officer. The local residents went on to inform the police, which brought the accused to the police station.

“The mother reached the police station after some time, following which a case was registered under IPC sections and Protection of Children under Sexual Offenders act,” said the officer in charge. The two girls have been sent for a medical examination. Further investigations are still on.
