The Vakola police, on Thursday, arrested Mohammad Jamshed Shaikh, 30, for allegedly having unnatural sex with a 13-year-old boy, a week ago.
Shaikh had been absconding since then. The boy, a Class 7 student, was playing near his residence in Santacruz (East) when Shaikh kidnapped him and had sex with him in his car.
The victim’s parents filed a complaint against Shaikh under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
As the boy’s friends had noted down the car’s registration number, the police were able to trace Shaikh.
