A 50-year-old man was arrested for sexually assaulting a minor girl in SJ Park, JC Road, on Tuesday.

The accused, Mohammed Anwar, was the neighbour of the nine-year-old victim. He was arrested following a complaint by the victim’s mother and produced before the magistrate. He was remanded in judicial custody, said a senior police officer.

According to the victim’s mother, the accused would call the girl as his daughter and make her clean his house. On Monday, her daughter complained of severe stomach pain and informed them about sexual assault by Anwar. The mother then approached the SJ Park police, who booked Anwar under various sections of the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act and arrested him on Monday night.

A large number of people had gathered in front of the police station seeking action against the accused. They demanded the police to hand over the accused to them as they wanted to teach him a lesson.

The situation was tense for some time as the locals tried to lay siege the police station. The police resorted to mild lathi-charge to disperse the crowd.
