Man held for harassing boy, demanding marriage

Mumbai: The Nehru Nagar police arrested a 35-year-old man for sexually harassing a 17-yearold boy and demanding that he marry him.
Police arrested Shadab Dalvi for also attempting to kiss the minor and showing him porn videos on his mobile phone. The victim, a diesel mechanic diploma student at a south Mumbai college, narrated the incident to his parents, who approached police. The victim told police he met Dalvi at a gym and later they became friends. “One day , Dalvi sent me a message on my Facebook account asking if I was interested in going to an Ajmer shrine. We both went in April. On reaching there, Dalvi took me to a small lodge and booked a room. Once we entered, he tried to kiss me, he removed my trousers and showed me porn videos. I got scared and ran outside but as I did not know anyone, I returned,“ the boy told police. He told police that when they went to the market the next day , Dalvi teased him, saying he should buy and wear female clothes and he would look nice in them. Dalvi also allegedly told him that he wanted to marry him. The victim told Dalvi he had to appear for exams and they returned to Mumbai. Last week, Dalvi called him near the railway tracks and again tried to kiss him and insisted on marriage. Dalvi was held under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
