A daily-wage labourer, who sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl at Tirupattur here, was sentenced to three years’ imprisonment by the district mahila court on Friday.
The girl, however, narrated the incident to her parents who immediately lodged a complaint with the Tirupatthur all-women police. They soon arrested Mayan and filed a case with the Mahila court. Mahila court judge Selvam, after going through the evidence, sentenced Mayan under POCSO Act to three years’ rigorous imprisonment, besides slapping a fine of Rs. 3000, on Friday. Mayan was subsequently sent to the Vellore central prison.
