A 60-year-old powerloom labourer, who is already in jail on molestation charge, was booked in a similar case at Bhiwandi on Sunday.

Five minor girls, in the age of 7 to 9 years, have alleged that the accused, Aslam Momin, had been molesting them for many days.

Senior police inspector from Bhiwandi city police station D Katke said, “On Saturday, one of the girls narrated her ordeal to some friends, who informed the parents. A case was lodged.”

During investigation, the police found that Momin had molested the minor girls and threatened them of dire consequences if they told anyone about it. He had threatened to kill their parents and had showed them a sharp weapon.

Momin was booked under relevant sections of 354, 509 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code and the Prevention Of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2012 (POCSO).

He was arrested on April 26 for molesting a girl. The second case was registered against him when he was in jail.
