CHENNAI:  A cinema make-up assistant living at Kodambakkam was arrested on Wednesday for sexually abusing a group of children after luring them by showing pornographic videos.

Police said the accused, Zahir Hussain (32) has been abusing children in the locality over a period of time and it came to their knowledge only when an NGO was counselling the children. Based on the information given by the NGO members, the police laid a trap on Wednesday night and arrested him.

“He would initially lure the boys by allowing them to play video games in his expensive mobiles and after sometime show pornographic contents. He also made them watch pornographic videos on TV by playing DVDs. After a period of time, he had started physically abusing the boys by making them perform sexual activities in his house,” said a police officer.

A few months ago, a group of children complained about him to elders in the locality and after warning issued by them, Hussain stopped the abuse of children for a while.

“He changed his target and lured another group of children. The children revealed the abuses they were facing when the NGO members were counselling them,” said a police officer.

The Vadapalani police booked him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act and remanded him. Police are looking out for an accomplice.

Doctor held on Rape Charge

A 32-year-old doctor was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly sexually exploiting a woman for years, on a false promise of marriage before tying the knot with another woman last year. Police said they arrested the accused R Israel, native of Villupuram and working at a private hospital in Andhra Pradesh, on charges of rape and harassment.  The woman complainant had alleged in her one-year-old complaint that Israel befriended her when he was a trainee in a government hospital in Chennai during his college days. For years, they shared an intimate relationship and she even had to undergo abortions a few times after sexual encounters with Israel, the woman alleged.
