BENGALURU: A woman was arrested for allegedly keeping mum about the sexual assault of her 12-year-old daughter.

The police have also held the accused, who is her distant relative.

The accused are Muzahid (32), a garage employee and a resident of Bharathinagar, and Asin (name changed) of D J Halli.

The D J Halli police said Muzahid used to visit the latter’s house often.

A few days ago, Muzahid sexually assaulted the girl when she was alone in the house.

According to the police, Asin knew about this. But did not file a complaint.

The incident came to light when the girl opened up to one of her classmates, who then informed her parents.

The parents alerted a non-government organisation (NGO), which filed a complaint with the police.

Based on the complaint, the D J Halli police arrested the victim’s mother and the accused. They have been sent to judicial custody.

The police said investigations have revealed that Asin was having an affair with Muzahid and was covering up for him.
