Hyderabad, Sep 16 : A special court here on Thursday sentenced a woman caretaker of a school to 20 years rigorous imprisonment for sexually abusing a minor boy four years ago.

The special court for POCSO Act cases also imposed a Rs 10,000 fine on the 27-year-old woman who had also caused burn injuries to the boy with a lit cigarette while molesting him in the school washroom.

The incident had occurred in November 2017 at a school in Chandrayangutta in the old city of Hyderabad.

The boy had later revealed what happened to his parents. They lodged a complaint with police against the school caretaker.

The police had filed a case against her under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and arrested her.
