The situation in Malegoan town, where a mob had set police vehicles and office of a minority-run school on fire, is “peaceful and under-control,” a senior police official said on Saturday.
On Friday, a mob had set police vehicles besides office of a minority-run school on fire after reports emerged alleging sexual abuse of a five-year-old girl student by a sweeper in the Ayesha Nagar locality.
Additional superintendent of police Sunil Kadasane said “the situation is peaceful and under-control with no untoward incident being reported in the night”.
Police had detained the sweeper in connection with the alleged sexual assault of the girl that had reportedly taken place last week.
Trouble began when the girl’s parents met the school management on Friday during which arguments broke out.
