NAVI MUM­BAI: The Kalam­boli po­lice have ar­rested the third ac­cused for al­legedly sex­u­ally as­sault­ing three mi­nor boys from Fe­bru­ary in an ashram on Thursday. The third ac­cused is a mi­nor.

On Monday, the po­lice had ar­rested two care­tak­ers of the ashram- Gau­rav Ka­mat, 27, and Dipesh Ni­akm, 19, in the case. The ac­cused would take the boys to their rooms at night and as­sault them.

“The three ac­cused stayed in the ashram to con­tinue their education. Later, they also started serv­ing there as care­tak­ers,” said Machin­dra Khade, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Kalam­boli po­lice sta­tion.

Po­lice have not re­vealed de­tails of the third ac­cused as he is a mi­nor. “We ar­rested the third ac­cused in the case from his home town. We can­not dis­close the place of his ar­rest as it vi­o­lates the pro­vi­sions of the Ju­ve­nile Jus­tice Act,” he said.

Af­ter his ar­rest, the third ac­cused was pro­duced be­fore the ju­ve­nile court and has sent to a re­mand home at Kar­jat.
