Two school transport drivers charged with defiling girl

Two coach drivers have been detained under arrest on charged of having had sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl who they used to take to school.

The Court was told that 32-year-old Nidhin Eldhose and 28-year-old Sarath Babu Kongadan allegedly had befriended the girl on social medi before the case occurred. The whole issue came to light when the girl went to hospital.

Both men were also charged with being in possession of child pornography, and with wrong use of a mobile phone. They are denying the charges.

Defence lawyer for Eldhose asked for bail, which request was denied as the girl has yet to give evidence, as well as because both men are foreign nationals and can abscond. No bail was requested for Kongadan.

The Court was presided by Magistrate Neville Camilleri.
