A man in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tirap district has been sentenced to a 20-year imprisonment for sexually assaulting a minor girl. 

The sentence was pronounced by a special court in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. 

The man, identified as Anil Chakma, has been convicted by the Court under section 6 of the POCSO Act. 

Chakma, in July last year, had sexually assaulted a 9-year-old girl, when she was at a shop to buy biscuits.
