A senior police officer stated that both the girls were frequenting the hospital where their mother is admitted. “The ward boy used to chase them in the lift and has been molesting them since last couple of days,” the officer said quoting the complaint.

The incident happened between September 23 to 25, he said.

He stated that the ward boy was arrested by Mapusa police on Sunday under section 354, 354-A, 354-D, Section 8 of Goa Children’s Act and section 8,9 and 10 of POCSO Act.
