A 20-year-old youth was arrested and remanded for allegedly attempting to sexually abuse a four and a half-year-old girl in Thavadareddivattam village near Bandarapalli in Vaniyambadi Taluk on Saturday.

Tamilarasan, working in a private company in Karur, had come to his native village Thavadareddivattam a week ago to attend a village temple festival, police attached to the All Women Police Station (AWPS) in Vaniyambadi said.

The incident took place on March 25 when Ramya (name changed) was on her way to the Anganwadi centre in the village. Tamilarasan gagged her and took her to a secluded place to sexually abuse her. However, he let her go and fled from the spot after she resisted and raised an alarm for help.

The incident came to light on March 28 when the girl saw Tamilarasan during the temple festival and told her father Solomon about the incident. Solomon immediately informed the village elders who tried to settle the issue among themselves.

However, Solomon approached the AWPS in Vaniyambadi the next day demanding action against the youth.

Responding to his complaint, the police registered a case under Section 376 and 511 of IPC read with Section 3 (b) of Protection of Children from Sexual Offence Act, 2012 and arrested Tamilarasan. He was sent to the Borstal School in Vellore.
