Coimbatore: A student of class 12 in a private school in RS Puram area of Coimbatore committed suicide last year. A teacher named Mithun Chakraborty who was working in the same school was arrested based on the suicide letter he had written. It was revealed that he had been sexually assaulting the student.
The key evidence in the case was the letter seized there. In it, “No one should be left idle. Rita’s grandfather. Father of Elisa Charu. This Sir ****** (expletive) should not let anyone’.
Mithun Chakraborty was arrested under the POCSO Act. Similarly, the principal of that school Meera Jackson was also arrested. However, questions have been raised as to the identity of the other two persons mentioned in the letter.
Although various information was released then, the student’s family and the police did not give any information about it. In this situation, after almost 9 months in this case, two elderly people have been arrested in the POCSO case.
Muslim Jamaat administrator Mohammad Sultan (70) and Manoraj (58) from the same area where the dead student’s house is located, have been arrested by the police and imprisoned for sexually assaulting the student. The POCSO court has ordered them to undergo judicial custody for 15 days.
It has been reported that Sultan lived near the student’s house and Manoraj belonged to the same area.
We have inquired about this from the police side. “We had sent the letter seized at the time of the student’s death for forensic examination. Test results are available recently. It was confirmed that the letter was written by the deceased student. After that, based on the information mentioned by the student in the letter, we conducted an investigation and now we have arrested two people under the POCSO Act,” he said.
