Last year a special court had sentenced him to life in prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old

Ayyaz Mohd. Ali Ansari (32) is the nightmare of every parent with a young girl child. The serial sexual offender who takes girl children along with him by telling them that he is their fathers' friend and they must come with him, then sexually assaults them in deserted places by threatening physical harm, was convicted by a special court yet again, this time for sexually assaulting an eight-year-old child.

Special Judge under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act Bharti Kale sentenced Ansari to ten years rigorous imprisonment under Section 4 of POCSO Act (punishment for penetrative sexual assault). He was also convicted under sections 376 (rape), 363 (punishment for kidnapping) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation). Special Judge Kale also imposed on him a total fine of Rs. 65,000 and directed that of it, Rs. 45,000 be paid as compensation to the survivor.  She also directed the District Legal Aid Services Authority to give adequate compensation to the child. In default of paying the fine, Ansari will have to spend additional time in jail serving rigorous imprisonment for at least a year.

In August last year, Ansari had been sentenced to a life term by a special POCSO court in South Mumbai for sexually assaulting and subjecting to unnatural sex a 13-year-old school girl in 2014. In this case, the prosecution had sought for death penalty for him under a section 376E (punishment for repeat offenders). Earlier in 2017, he had been convicted in two different cases of sexual assault on children – in one of which he had got a life term and in another, seven years.

In the present incident that took place in October 2013, according to the prosecution, the child, then studying in Class 3, was returning at 7 PM from her tuition class and was near her home when an unknown man called out to her. He told her that he is a friend of her father's and that she must come with him and he will give her his contact number. The confused child had followed him for a distance and then wanted to escape, but he had kept looking at her in an intimidating manner, that she kept following him, stated the childs' statement to the police. The man had then taken her behind a building, where it was dark and threatening to stab her with a knife if she did not undress, then undressed her and sexually assaulted her.

Additional Public Prosecutor Rakesh Tiwari said six months after the incident, the mother of the survivor had been informed by neighbours about a serial sexual offender of children who had been arrested by DN Nagar police. The report that had appeared in a local tabloid which had carried his photo too. When the mother showed the photo to the child, the child immediately recognized the man as the same one who had assaulted her. In the description the child had given of Ansari to the police earlier, she had mentioned that his one eye looked white, while other was black.
