French citizen named Thierry Gagner was arrested  on charges of sexually abusing a minor girl from Odisha in the Union territory of Puducherry. The Lawspet police said that a case under Section 10 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act had been registered against the accused Thierry Gagner. The minor has been sent for medical examination to check for penetrative assault. Following a tip-off, a Child Welfare Committee (CWC) team, led by chairperson Vidyaa Ramkumar, raided a house in a residential neighbourhood where Thierry Gagner, Director of Hopigo and Missions Humanitarians, an NGO, was living with a family from Odisha. The CWC team said the accused Thierry Gagner owned four flats in the locality, where he had adopted a family of four children from Odisha and was sponsoring their education in Puducherry. The committee sent the minor girl for medical examination to Rajiv Gandhi women and children hospital to ascertain whether Gagner indulged in penetrative sexual activities so as to invoke appropriate and relevant sections of the Pocso Act to ensure maximum punishment for the French citizen, if found guilty.
