A Class 11 student allegedly sodomised a six-year-old boy in sugarcane fields of Machhiwara village on Wednesday.

Police said the panchayat informed them of the incident, but were yet to file a written complaint against the 16-year-old, which was required to register an FIR.

According to the panchayat members, the six-year-old boy was walking back home, when the teenager accosted him, offering him candies and a ride on his bicycle. When the child got on his bicycle, the accused took him to the sugarcane fields in the village, and sodomised him, before letting the boy go.

The victim reached back home and narrated the matter to his parents, who then approached the panchayat, that took the matter to the police.

When contacted, block education officer Sher Singh said though the incident occurred outside the school, they will investigate the matter, and take appropriate action against the student.

Inspector Surinderpal Singh, station house officer (SHO), Macchiwara police station, said they will register a case after a written complaint from the victim’s parents.
