A bus driver and cleaner were arrested by the police for allegedly molesting a mentally-challenged school girl in Mumbai. According to the police, the incident occurred last month on December 19, when the victim was returning home from school. The bus cleaner Shiv Prasad Yadav (29) and driver Sandeep Mishra (26) molested the girl when she was alone.
Mohan Patil, Police Officer, Santacruz Police Station said, “The incident occurred last month when the victim’s mother was not in India and the victim informed her mother after she came back. Later the family members filed a complaint against the bus driver and cleaner on January 14 and they were arrested on the same day.”
A police official said, “The accused person removed the victim’s clothes and inserted a water bottle in her private part.”
After the case was registered, the bus driver told that the cleaner used to show objectionable photos to the girls and boys inside the school bus.
