Mumbai: Man tortured live-in partner's 4-yr-old with cigarette burns

The Vikhroli police have arrested a 35-year-old for physically harassing the four-year-old son of his live-in partner.

Satish Kotian (35) has been arrested for allegedly torturing the four-year-old child of his live-in partner with lit cigarettes. 

The cops alleged that the accused, a resident of Tagore Nagar, Vikhroli, would inflict burn injuries on the child’s private parts with cigarettes, whenever he got angry with his mother. The accused has been identified as Satish Kotian, who has been in a live-in relationship with the four-year-old’s mother since a year.

Senior Police Inspector Dinesh Desai, from Vikhroli police station, said, “The mother Archana left her husband and came over to Kotian’s residence and started staying with him a year ago. The accused has left several burn marks on his (the child’s) private parts.”

Locals suspect
Since a few weeks, locals staying nearby were getting suspicious of some wrongdoing, as a voice of a child crying would constantly disturb them in the nights. So, on Wednesday, the curious locals went to Kotian’s residence, and found out that the four-year-old was constantly being harassed by Kotian.

The child had a fractured hand and leg, following which the residents informed the police. The police later said that the fractures had been caused as the child had hurt himself while playing.

Desai added, “At around 11 am, we were informed by the main control room, after which we sent our team immediately to check and we found out that a four-year-old has been facing the horror since the last few months.

But his hand and leg weren’t fractured by Kotian, as he (the child) had earlier got hurt while playing.” The cops then instantly got hold of the accused Kotian and the child’s mother Archana, and got them to the police station along with the child victim.

“However, we are yet to ascertain the reason for him harassing the minor, but the prima facie investigations revealed that the accused would give him burn marks whenever he got angry with his mother,” added Desai. The accused has been booked under Section 23 of the Juvenile Justice Act and will be produced in a Vikhroli court today.
