A 14-year-old boy was apprehended by the Musheerabad Police on Wednesday for allegedly molesting a 4-year-old in October last year.

The police said the juvenile in conflict with the law, a native of Jharkhand, who was working at a tea stall when he allegedly committed the offence, had fled the city after the incident. The victim’s parents approached the police with a complaint, following which efforts were made to apprehend the boy.

“He was caught in Jharkhand. He had taken the girl to a room and inappropriately touched her,” said T. Srinath Reddy, Musheerabad Police Station House Officer. The juvenile was booked under the POCSO Act, and produced before a juvenile justice board.
