RAWALPINDI: A nine-year-old school boy was allegedly sexually abused by a man in Morgah area on Monday.

Police said the suspect, who is a hotel owner, was arrested and the victim was shifted to a hospital for medical examination.

Father of the victim complained to police that his nine-year-old son informed him that he was taken to a hotel room by its owner while he was returning home from school, where he was sexually abused.

A police spokesman said the suspect has been arrested after registration of an FIR while medical examination of the victim was also carried out. He said the suspect will be produced before a court of law with sufficient evidence so that he could be brought to justice.

Meanwhile, a student has been missing from a seminary since the past few days.
