Why no arrest in sexual assault case, Maneka asks Kolkata DGP

Union Minister Maneka Gandhi on Thursday expressed her concern over the non-arrest of the accused involved in the sexual assault of a two-year-old boy at a play-school in Kolkata.

"I have spoken to the DGP Kolkata about the case and expressed my displeasure that they have not been able to arrest the accused when a play-school has very limited number of employees. I have requested him to ensure that immediate action is taken to arrest the accused," the Women and Child Development minister tweeted.

The minister said it was shocking for her to know that the incident happened at the play-school, which is run by the well known Mount Litera group of institutions.

The incident happened last week in Diamond Harbour, Kolkata. The victim's father found the private part of his son was bleeding after he returned home from school on July 2 and filed a complaint with the police.
