Man in Court for Allegedly  Sexually Assaulting Teen Boy

A Lautoka man fronted court yesterday charged with two counts of allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager.

The alleged incidents happened between June 1 and July 31 this year.

Tariq Sadat Ali Bahadur, 42, a technical officer, of Vomo Street in Lautoka appeared before Magistrate Bandula Gunaratne.

It is alleged that Bahadur committed the offence with a teenager, who was staying in a hostel.

It is believed that a younger boy witnessed the incidents during Bahadur’s visitations to the hostel and reported the matter to Police.

Bahadur was taken in for questioning on December 19.

Magistrate Gunaratne granted him bail for $1000 with two sureties, and a $500 cash bail. He is to report to the Lautoka Police Station every Friday and not interfere with prosecution witnesses.

The case has been adjourned to January 8, 2018, for mention.
