The Supreme Court on Friday rejected the plea of a French national, a founding trustee of an international school in Mumbai, to remain out on bail in a case of alleged sexual assault on a three-year-old girl.
The bench also directed the trial court to decide the matter as per material available on record.
The high court had asked Brilliant to surrender forthwith before the authority concerned and asked the trial court to complete the proceedings in four months.
The mother of the child, who had registered the FIR last May against the trustee and a teacher, had moved the high court for cancellation of his bail.
On May 18, 2017, an FIR was lodged against Brilliant for sexually assaulting the child after which he was arrested on November 7.
