The Chatushrungi police have arrested a domestic help who sexually assaulted the four-year-old son of her employer in Aundh.

Police arrested Reema Sundar Bhegra (19),a native of Jharkhand,from a place in south Delhi. The boy’s mother had lodged a complaint.

Police said Reema was working as a domestic help for a Aundh businessman after she was hired through a private agency in Delhi. The incident came to light after the child’s parents found injuries on his private parts. The boy was taken to a doctor where medical examination suggested the boy might have been subjected to sexual abuse.

Senior police inspector Ajay Kadam said,“We got in touch with the recruiting agency but it had closed down. Our team managed to retrieve the residential address of the maid. We nabbed her from a place in south Delhi on Wednesday. She was brought to Pune on transit remand.”

On May 15,the boy’s mother had caught Reema red-handed sexually assaulting him. Reema was then fired from the job. However,she called the boy’s mother and threatened to harm her children.
