Kishor Kalamkar Patil (45) was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment on Tuesday by District Judge-1 and Additional Sessions Judge M S Azmi for sexually exploiting a minor girl for three years. Patil was also convicted of criminal intimidation and sentenced to one year in prison.
According to the prosecution, Patil, who worked as a peon at an English medium school, sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in her home from January 20, 2013, to December 17, 2016. The victim, a Standard IX student, told her teacher about her ordeal, who immediately notified the principal.
Patil allegedly forced the victim to take three pregnancy tests. The victim’s mother consulted a psychiatrist to counsel the girl. The mother was then advised to file a police report against the perpetrator. The victim’s mother went to Gittikhadan Police with the help and support of a Child Line Team member.
On January 20, 2018, a case was filed against Patil under Sections 376 (2) and 506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), as well as Sections 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Patil was arrested by police on January 21, 2018.
