A youth, facing charges under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, was arrested after he inflicted stab wounds on a woman and her daughter near Uduma.

Sajith, 25, barged into the residence of the 40-year-old woman in an inebriated condition and stabbed her and her 19-year-old daughter around midnight, Bekal police sub-inspector K.P. Vinodkumar said.

On hearing cries for help from the house, local people caught him and handed him over to the police, he said.

The man was evading arrest after he tried to sexually assault the woman’s minor daughter.

The police have registered a case against the youth under the provisions of IPC Section 308 (culpable homicide) and remanded him in judicial custody after he was produced at a local court.
