Kolkata: In the increasing number of sexual harassments of minors, another incident has been reported in the city on Saturday. A minor has allegedly been a victim of sexual harassment for 2 months at a stretch by an elderly person of her locality. The incident took place at Kalia Colony under Tollygunge Police Station. The accused has been arrested by the police.
The accused person, Narayan Sardar (60), is the resident of the same locality where the minor lives. Reportedly, the girl lovingly used to refer the person as ‘dadu’ (grandfather). Sardar allegedly used to sexually abuse the girl after taking her to his house. The phenomenon continued for 2 months. Sardar also threatened the girl to keep mum about the matter.
