Court acquits driver 'wrongly accused' of sexually abusing LKG student in Kochi Rashid

Kochi: A school van driver, who spent 77 days in prison after he was accused of raping an LKG student, was acquitted by a local court in Kochi on Monday.

The court said there was no evidence to prove that he raped the child and stated that Rashid was innocent. The court had summoned the child and recorded her statement. The child's statements helped the court conclude that the Marad native was innocent.

The court also asked the police to close the case which accused the driver of sexually assaulting the LKG student inside the school van in December 2015. The case was not investigated properly by the police, the court said. The police filed the case after a complaint by the child's mother.
