MALAPPURAM: Malappuram district police chief S Sujith Das said that the 15-year-old accused, who was arrested for assaulting a 21-year-old woman in Kondotty, has confessed to his crime. The police said that the accused was physically strong and a district Judo champion. The accused did not have any criminal background. He cannot be produced in court as he is a minor. After recording his arrest, he will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board, the police said.

"The accused followed the woman from her home. He attacked her and dragged her to a nearby paddy field. He hit her with a stone when she defended herself. The woman escaped due to luck," the district police chief said.


S Sujith Das also said that the influence of the internet among students must be examined. The 21-year-old woman was brutally attacked during an attempted rape at Kondotty on Monday. The woman, who resisted the attempted rape, was hit on the head with a stone by the accused.
