A 45-year-old woman has been arrested on charges of allegedly raping a 15-year-old boy at Vambey Colony in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. It is said that the woman sexually harassed the boy for over a month.

The incident is said to have occurred on May 5, but came to light when the boy's mother filed a case in this regard recently.

The woman is a neighbour of the victim. Currently, she has been booked under Section 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act by the Nunna police. The woman has been sent to judicial custody.

According to a report in Times of India, the boy was forced to have sex by the accused on May 5. Frightened by this, the boy went to his grandparent's house in Srikakulam and returned on June 5.

After his return too, the accused is said to have kept a close watch on the boy and on June 7, tried to rape him again when the mother of the boy caught her red handed.

Thinking the boy was also involved with her, mother started beating up the boy, but then he revealed that he had faced this one month ago too and had gone to grandparents house to escape from her clutches, it is reported.

Following this, mother filed a case against the woman, who is now in judicial custody.
