According to the police, a case has been registered against the Lance Naik rank jawan of the elite force under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act along with Section 377 of the IPC (unnatural offences) after the father of the boy complained that his colleague and next door neighbour had ill-treated his child.
"We have arrested Sahib Singh in the case today and further investigations are on," Gurgaon Police Commissioner Alok Mittal told PTI. Singh, who works as an orderly for an NSG officer and is from the Army, hails from Haryana, police sources added.
Boy informed his parents that he was allegedly assaulted by the accused.
Both the jawans, who have been trained in commando tactics, have been living in the National Security Guard (NSG) campus in Manesar and the incident came to light after the boy informed his parents that he was allegedly assaulted by the accused few times in the last over four months.
According to the police, the father has alleged in his complaint that the accused be-friended his son and the assault took place when the child first went to his home late last year and after that he was threatened by the accused not to divulge the act to anyone. The boy has undergone a medical checkup after which complaint was registered, they said.
Efforts to reach NSG officials for a comment did not fructify.
