KOLLAM: The police have arrested a man who had abused an eighth standard girl student for about a year. Ironically, the man is a friend of the girl’s mother.

The incident happened at Kadakkal in Kollam. The accused has been identified as Kadakkal Chariparambu Kovur native Ashiq. He has been booked under POCSO Act.

Ashiq was a frequent visitor to the girl’s house.

He often took the student from school to the house in the evenings and sexually abused her. Because of this, the student started performing badly in the school. The incident came to light after the school authorities counselled the child.

Childline workers were called in and they lodged a complaint with the police. Based on the complaint, Ashiq was arrested and produced in the court; he was remanded him to judicial custody.
