Assam teacher sexually abuses minors and sentenced to 6 years in prison

Last year, a district court in Assam sentenced teachers to six years in prison for sexually abusing a minor girl. The court also fined 10,000 rupees.

On Thursday, the District Special Judge (POCSO) sentenced a teacher, a local tutorial teacher, to six years in prison.

After last year’s case, the victim’s family filed a complaint with police in February of this year, who subsequently registered the case under the Indian Criminal Code and POCSO Law sections.

Attorney Prabin DebRoy said the courts of additional district and session judges and special judges (POCSOs) have passed the final judgment in sexual abuse cases.

“The court has sentenced the accused to six years in prison and a fine of 10,000 rupees. Failure to pay will result in an additional six months in prison under Article 10 of the POCSO Act.” Said.
