A 29 year old religious man of Indian origin is actively sought by investigators from the Criminal Brigade following a complaint filed against him by a 19 year old student on Friday at the police station of Grand-Bassin. The complainant alleged that the man indecently assaulted her.
The woman says in her complaint that she was in a place of prayer in the high Plaine Wilhems with her mother on Friday, August 12. As she was praying, a religious approached her and indecently assaulted her.
“Après l’acte abominable, le religieux s’est enfui. Bien que ce soit un lieu sacré et qu’il y ait des gens, je n’arrive pas à comprendre comment un religieux a pu commettre cet acte insensé sur ma personne,” said the complainant in her testimony.
In the words of the young woman to investigators, her mother was there and witnessed this incident. The student will be examined by a police doctor. The religious who is wanted by police, faces a provisional charge of indecent assault.
