In Vadodra Gujarat, a 19-year-old Tausif Imran Khan, a class XII has been booked for repeatedly forcing a 14 year old minor girl to indulge in sexual acts. Tausif had reportedly also tried to brainwash her to convert into Islam, and used to take her to different religious places. He has been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act for sexually exploiting a minor. Police say that he used to take the girl to Lalbaug garden and also near the ONGC campus on Pratapnag to sexually harass her.
According to police, he used to make videos of the intimate acts with the act. He later threatened to share those videos on social media.
Parents of the victim discovered about the exploitation of their daughter when on one day the decided to follow her. They found out that Khan took her to Lalbaug garden and then to Hazira tomb on Pratapnagar Road. The parents have alleged that Tausif was brainwashing the girl to change religion and had promised to marry her, as a result of which she even fasted on Ramazan this year.
“The girl was appearing for class X exam and the accused was there to take his class XII exam. Since then he had been following the girl, contacting her and making promises of marrying her,” the police official said.
Police say Khan is a history-sheeter who had been booked under POCSO Act on charges of molestation of a minor girl in 2017 when he was a juvenile.
Police said that Khan has been picked up from his home, but has not been formally arrested. His medical test was conducted late on Saturday evening.
