CRIMINAL

Madras High Court has set aside a trial court order acquitting a school teacher in Puducherry who had been charged with sexual assaulting a minor student by observing that a four-year old child cannot be expected to give cogent evidence regarding the sexual assault suffered. The teacher, Earlam Periera, had been sentenced on two counts under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.
