Ayyaz Mohammadali Ansari was convicted for the rape of a 10-year-old girl in 2014. Before this, Ansari had been convicted and sentenced to five years imprisonment by the Andheri metropolitan court in another case. On January 17, 2014, the 10-year-old girl, who used to stay with her grandmother, aunt and uncle at Andheri, had stepped out of the house to buy cheese around 7pm. When she returned, she saw a man, later identified as Ansari, waiting outside. He asked the girl if her uncle was home and when she said no, he directed her to follow him. He told the girl that he wanted to give her the uncle’s phone number. Ansari then took the girl to a deserted building nearby and raped her. He also threatened her at knifepoint and said he would kill her if she spoke to anyone about the incident. The girl returned home and the next morning, she narrated the incident to her grandmother and aunt. A police complaint was lodged and based on the description given by the girl, a sketch was prepared.
