Sexual assault on minor: TN man ousted from BJP held from hideout in Andhra
Parthasarathy, who was removed as BJP’s west zone advocates’ wing head after city police registered a case against him under Pocso Act, was traced to his hideout in Andhra Pradesh and arrested on Thursday. While MKB Nagar police registered a case against him under six sections, BJP on August 4 announced that Parthasarathy was removed from the party.
While police had launched a hunt for Parthasarathy, he went into hiding and stayed at a friend’s house in Andhra Pradesh. A special team of Pulianthope police secured him on Wednesday night and brought him to Chennai on Thursday. Parthasarathy had already been arrested in 2018 for misbehaving with a woman and Kodungaiyur police registered a fresh case since the same woman complained that he continues to harass her. Parthasarathy who had been absconding since then was later booked under Pocso Act since the woman’s minor daughter lodged a complaint that he molested her.
