New Delhi: A youth has been sentenced to two years in jail for sodomising an eight-year-old boy with a city court terming his offence as "sexual perversion" that is "on rise" in recent times.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Sanjay Garg jailed Aligarh resident Aash Mohammad, 21, for sodomising the minor boy in June 2010 after promising him to give him Rs 50.



"The boy (victim) with whom the accused (Mohammad) did carnal intercourse was just eight years of age. Such type of offence shows sexual perversion of the convict (Mohammad). In recent past, it is noted that sexual assault both on boys and girls is on the rise," said the judge, while also imposing a fine of Rs 2,000 on convict.

The court convicted Mohammad relying on the testimonies of victim and his family members and also on the medical records.

"In the light of clear and specific statement of victim, his family members and medical evidence brought on record by the prosecution, defence taken by the accused (regarding false implication in the case) is an afterthought and deserves no consideration," the judge said.

According to the prosecution, the victim's mother had lodged a complaint alleging that Aash Mohammad, a fruit vendor who used to reside at Karkardooma village here, had sodomised her son on June 26, 2010 after promising to give him Rs 50.

On her complaint, the accused was arrested on June 27, 2010 from Karkardooma village.

During the trial, Mohammad denied the allegations saying he was falsely implicated in the case as he had an argument with the brother and father of the boy on the issue of removing his 'rehri', which he used to park near their house.

He said the boy's brother and father had threatened him that if he did not remove his 'rehri' from there, they would get him falsely implicated in some case.
