“The boy’s family got to see the video and approached the police on Thursday with a complaint. On their complaint, we registered an FIR under Indian Penal Code Section 377 (unnatural offences) and provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. One of the prime suspects is aged about 19 years while the age of the second suspect, who filmed the act, is yet to be ascertained. They both are the boy’s neighbours,” said Nimish Patil, assistant commissioner of police (Masuri) said.

Police said the two suspects also threatened the boy with dire consequences if he revealed the assault to anyone.

“We have formed teams to trace the two suspects involved in the case. They are on run ever since the video went viral and came to the knowledge of the boy’s family,” the ACP said.
