A schoolboy of 14 years old was arrested by the Flacq police on Monday. Two teenage girls of 16 and 17 years old have brought charges of fondling against him on Tuesday August 16.
The young man was arrested on Monday. When questioned by investigators, he confessed to molesting two teenagers. He also said that his friends have been pressuring him. Additionally, they showed him pornographic movies on mobile phones several times in college.
“Mo bann kamarad dir mwa al fer atousman lor bann tifi. Zot dir mwa mo enn zanfan ek mo pa pou kapav fer sa. Ils m’ont lancé ce défi. J’avais refusé d’obtempérer. Je leur ai dit que ce qu’ils me demandaient de faire est puni par la loi. Mais le mardi 16 août, alors que je déambulais à Flacq, j’ai vu deux adolescentes. Sa ler la mo pa kone ki finn pass dan mo latet ek monn fer atousman lor zot,” explained the suspect to investigators.
After interrogation, the schoolboy appeared before the court of Flacq, where an interim charge of indecent assault was filed against him. Police have objected to his release on parole and he was taken to the Correctional Youth Center. On Wednesday, he was released after paying a bail of Rs 5000 and signed an acknowledgment of debt of Rs 50,000.
The father of schoolboy revealed that his son is not like the others. “Il souffre de troubles mentaux et ses camarades de classe ont profité de lui. Il est innocent et ne sait pas ce qu’il fait. Ses amis lui ont tendu un piège. Li tris ki ankor ena sa bann kalite zelev-la dan kolez. Au lieu d’aider mon fils, ses amis se sont mal conduits envers lui.”
