The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: Two men were con­victed and sen­tenced to four years’ jail for kid­nap­ping and mo­lest­ing a 12-year-old girl by a spe­cial Posco Act court on Mon­day. While Ar­man Khan and Altaf Pa­tel were found guilty of kid­nap­ping and mo­lest­ing the child in 2014, their aide Sam­sud­din Khan was con­victed only for kid­nap­ping and sen­tenced to three years’ jail.

The pros­e­cu­tion said that on Fe­bru­ary 2, 2014, the girl, her friend and brother boarded an auto to reach a the­atre nearby. He didn’t take money from them. The po­lice said at 1.30am, when the trio were at a sweet shop, the auto stopped near them and Ar­man and Altaf who were in the pas­sen­ger seat told them to get in. When the chil­dren re­fused, the duo dragged them into the auto and Sam­sud­din sped away. When he halted at a dis­tance, the girl’s brother and friend fled. The duo then sex­u­ally abused the 12-yearold, said the pros­e­cu­tion.
