The Hill Line police of Ulhasnagar arrested a 24-year-old man on Sunday for sodomising an eight-year old boy. The accused, identified as Sanju (Guddu) Sanath Roy, has been arrested and charged under section 377 (unnatural offence) and relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
According to the police, the incident happened around 1pm on April 4. The victim came home from appearing in his computer exams, had food and told his mother that he was going out to a nearby area to pluck mangoes.
Roy, who knew the boy, met him on the way. He told the victim that he would help him in plucking mangoes if he first comes with him. Roy also promised to give him Rs 10.
The boy was reluctant as he wanted to go with his friends. However, on Roy's insistance, he got ready to go with the accused. Roy took the boy to an isolated area where a truck was parked. He then gagged and sodomised him behind the truck.
Roy then asked boy to go home. He threatened to beat him if he told anyone about what had happened.
When the parents saw him bleeding, they took the child to a hospital.
The parents then lodged a complaint with the police. Police Inspector DR Dhopavakar said, "It was very difficult to communicate with the victim because he was in shock. We took the statement of his mother and then lodged a complaint against Roy."
