The Bulandshahr police in Uttar Pradesh have arrested two persons, including a madrasa principal, for allegedly sodomising and holding captive an eight-year-old boy for nearly two months.
According to police, the victim is a native of Aligarh and was living at a madrasa in Jahangirabad area of Bulandshahr for the past two years. During the weekend, the boy visited a relative’s house in Bulandshahr, where he was spotted crying alone. Upon asking, he narrated his ordeal to the relatives who informed the police and registered a case against the accused.
Police found that the two had been sodomising the child for over two months and had threatened him to stay quiet.
