Mumbai: A Special Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) Court has convicted a 33-year-old man for seven years in jail for showing a 13-year-old girl his private parts and for masturbating in front of her.

According to prosecution, on January 2013, the victim was returning home from her tuition when Ansari called her. He requested her to accompany him to a nearby office where he had kept a phone number on a paper chit that had to be given to her father, who he claimed to know.

The girl went with him to a nearby building in Andheri (west), where on the deserted third floor, he started masturbating in front of her.

The girl, who was in a state of shock, escaped from the building and ran to her friend’s house, from where she narrated the incident to her parents. They filed a police complaint.

The defense lawyer of the accused Ayyaj alias Firoj Kanya Ali Ansari argued that the police was pinning the blame on him because they could not nab the real culprit, but the court dismissed this.

POCSO judge Surekha Patil held the accused guilty under the charges of outraging the modesty of a woman, kidnapping and criminal intimidation and awarded him jail term for seven years and a fine of Rs 10,000.
