Two behind bars for 4 yrs for abducting, molesting 12-yr-old
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.
