Thiruvananthapuram: Police booked an Assam native Ribun Mohammed alias Shahrukh Khan for sexually assaulting and impregnating a minor girl in Vilappilsala. The incident surfaced only when the 16-year-old girl delivered a baby. Meanwhile, the accused fled to Assam after hearing that the girl was pregnant.
Though the accused fled to his native place, he returned soon and started work in different locations of the district. The probe became arduous as there were no photographs of the accused or further information about him with the investigation team. The accused was later arrested following a probe conducted by concentrating on the clusters were the migrant labourers reside. Police informed that the suspect had sexually assaulted the girl several times when there were none in her house.
A team of Vilappilsala state inspector N Suresh Kumar, SI Ganga Prasad, ASI RV Baiju, Anandakuttan, civil police officers- Hari, Ratheesh, Ajin and Jayashankar found and arrested the accused. The girl was subjected to counselling.
