Press Trust of India  |  Balasore (Odisha) 

A 72-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years rigorous imprisonment by a local court for sexually assaulting a differently-abled girl more than five years ago.

Aditional District Judge, Balasore, also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Sasikanta Jena of Jaleswar area on Wednesday.

The girl was sexually assaulted by Jena for a couple of months but she kept silent out of fear.

However, her mother, who came to know about it later, lodged a complaint in station on September 28, 2014.

Jena was then arrested and put on trial.
