School van driver accused of rape bid on 4-year-old girl arrested in Ludhiana

The school van driver who was accused of attempting to rape a four-year-old girl was arrested amid high drama on Tuesday.

Confirming the arrest, Mullanpur Dakha deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Gurbans Singh Bains said, “We have arrested the accused van driver hailing from Khaira Bet and registered an FIR against him under Section 354 (molestation) of the IPC and Section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act.”

Earlier in the day, at least 150 people, most of them parents of children studying in the private school whose van the accused used to drive, had stormed in the room of principal, alleging inaction in the case. The parents alleged that authorities did not take any action against the accused driver and conductor, who attempted to rape the four-year-old student of their school.
