4-year-old sexually assaulted by classmate in Delhi: The legal course
Section 82 of the IPC (Indian Penal Code, 1860) provides an absolute exclusion to a minor below seven to be held under any criminal liability. Legal experts believe the case will be investigated and closed if the boy's involvement is proved.

“The police would do a thorough background check of the incident, the child and his family and close the case stating reasoning it as a mistake of law,” says Nair.
On November 17, a minor girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in a Delhi school by her classmate — a four-year-old boy. While police have registered a case under the provisions of POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Assault) on the basis of a complaint by the girl’s parents, it is not very clear how legal proceedings will be taken further in the matter.
