A 42-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly beating up and sexually assaulting a minor boy in Delhi’s Dwarka area, according to the police. The police said the complainant, an eight-year-old boy, told his mother that the accused first hit him and later committed “unnatural offences” on the terrace of the residential building in Sector 22.
According to the police, they received a call about the incident on March 13 around 6 pm.
