Disabled girl molested by mall salesman in Navi Mumbai
A man has been arrested in Mumbai for sexual assault on a 13 year old girl with mental disabilities.
The 22 year old man named Ashish Kanchan, works as a salesman at a shoe store in a Seawoods mall.
The victim used to come with her mother to the mall after school as the mother runs a rental store there.
The incident took place in September last year but was only discovered during a counselling session at the girl’s school.
The school authorities then informed the mother and a complaint was filed.
The accused has been booked under POCSO and rape charges by the police.
Sadly this is not the first such incident, and the girl had gone through a similar abuse at her previous school sometime back.
At the time, a school bus driver had molested the child but the mother had not filed a complaint.
She had feared social shame and had changed school.
