Delhi: 4-year-old son of magazine editor molested by karate teacher

New Delhi: Four-year-old son of CEO and editor-in-chief of a leading news magazine was allegedly molested on multiple occasions by his karate teacher in southeast Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar, police said on Thursday.

The four-year-old boy told his parents the accused allegedly touched him inappropriately when he was in the change room, police said.

The boy was molested on a couple of occasions. The victim expressed reluctance about going to the karate classes and when he was prodded, he confessed to his parents about his teacher’s act, they added.

The boy was always accompanied by his mother or maid-servant when he went to the classes and the accused used to molest him when he would go to the change room, police said.

The accused, identified as Deepak, is currently absconding, said a senior police officer.

Police sources said the accused had apologised to the victim’s family and the matter has been settled. But since an FIR has been registered in the matter, only court can quash or dismiss it.
