A police constable who allegedly sodomised a 13-year-old school boy was arrested Tuesday in Odisha’s Jajpur district.

He was arrested after the mother of the victim lodged a complaint with the Jenapur police station alleging that the constable, Suvendu Malik, had sodomised her son, a student of class VIII, late on Sunday evening by taking him to a secluded place “The boy cried in pain and some people who were passing nearby rushed to the spot after hearing his scream and rescued him,” the police said quoting the FIR. . - PTI
