A 37-year-old man was recently sentenced by a court in Thane in Maharashtra to three years in jail for molesting a minor girl in 2014.
In his order on January 8, Special (POCSO) Judge HM Patwardhan convicted Nabiulla Samani under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act and also fined him Rs 2,000.
"Samani sexually assaulted the girl, 10 at that time, on November 4, 2014 when she was alone at home. He does furniture polishing on contract basis and is a resident of Rabale in Navi Mumbai," Additional Public Prosecutor Varsha Chandane said.
