Jail term tripled for Indian ‘FT’ who squeezed boobs of 15 year old girl at hotel

The 42 year old engineer was convicted of molesting a 15-year-old Australian girl and was sentenced to six weeks’ jail last month.
The court learnt that Vashist had asked the bikini-clad victim to follow him to the male changing room and when she refused, Vashist moved forward and squeezed her breast.
The victim then informed her teacher who called the police. Vashist was in Singapore for a conference.
Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Sanjna Rai argued that the six-week jail term was too lenient and the District Judge had also not given “sufficient regard” to aggravating factors, such as Vashist’s intrusion of the victim’s private parts.
