A woman comes back from the US after a decade to get the ‘molester’ teacher arrested in Mumbai, India on Monday (17).

She complained on Sunday (16) and the 55-year-old guitar teacher was arrested on Monday.

The teacher sexually abused the girl for three years between 2007 and 2010 at her home in suburban Andheri when he used to give her music lessons, police said.

The victim was around nine years old when the accused began molesting her. She later migrated to the US for higher studies when she was 12.

The victim, now around 21 years old and studying at a college in the US, arrived in Mumbai on Sunday and lodged an FIR against the accused.

After recording her statement, the Oshiwara police arrested the accused.

The victim in her statement alleged that the teacher used to molest her and speak in the vulgar language during music lessons.

“We have arrested the teacher under Indian Penal Code Sections 354 (molestation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 506 (criminal intimidation). It is an old case of the offence that took place between 2007 and 2010 before the victim went to the US,” police said.

The police were trying to find out if the accused molested other students also.
