A 62-year-old rickshaw-puller was arrested on Monday for allegedly sexually assaulting two minor boys after making them watch a porn movie on his television at his home in outer Delhi’s Mangolpuri.
The arrested rickshaw puller, identified as Ram Kishan, lived alone at F-block in Mangolpuri. Police said the incident took place on Monday evening and Kishan was arrested in the night after the mother of one of the victims approached the Mangolpuri police station and lodged a complaint against him.
A police officer said the complainant told them that her son was playing in the neighbourhood with the other victim and some other children. The rickshaw-puller was watching television at his house when the two victims entered his house to watch a cartoon programme.
While the boys were busy watching television, Kishan locked the main door of the house and played a porn movie. “Kishan asked them to watch the movie and indulged himself in unnatural sexual activities with them. He sodomised the two boys and asked them not to tell their parents about it,” the officer said.
After they returned home, one of the boys told his mother about the incident after which she called the police control room and lodged a complaint against Kishan.
On the basis of her complaint, a case under section 377 (unnatural offences) and section 6 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, was registered and Kishan was arrested. Kishan’s wife had died some years ago, said police.
