Jharsuguda: The police on Wednesday arrested the founder of Faith Outreach located at Jharsuguda on charges of sexually harassing a minor boy, who was an inmate of a shelter home run by the organization. After the court rejected the bail plea of Faith Outreach’s founder John Patrick Bridge (68), he was sent to judicial custody.
Bridge had been allegedly sexually harassing some minor boys studying at a school run by Faith Outreach.
Based on a complaint filed by one of the minor boys, the police launched a probe after registering case under POCSO Act and SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
Bridge was later questioned by the police team on basis of the findings of the probe.
