palathayi

THALASSERY: The Crime Branch investigation team on Tuesday submitted the charge sheet in connection with a case in which a teacher was accused of sexually abusing a class four student at Palathayi in Panoor. The charge sheet was submitted at the Thalassery POCSO court.


The accused, Padmarajan, has been charged under section 82 of the Juvenile Justice Act. It is learnt that he was not charged under sections of the POCSO act because of the absence of scientific evidence. It was Crime Branch DySP Madhusoodhanan who submitted the charge sheet. The court had rejected Padmarajan's bail plea on July 8. Earlier, the state witnessed widespread protest against the delay in filing the charge sheet.
