Daraj runs a meat shop named Maharashtra Chicken Shop, which is located close to Orange Hospital on Mira Road. He had sexually assaulted the four-year-old daughter of his neighbour on April 7 and issued death threats if she revealed about the incident to her parents. The terrified girl remained silent for a few days but finally revealed the ordeal to her father after she started suffering from intense abdominal pain. The matter was reported to the police following which the accused was arrested and booked under the relevant sections of the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

According to reports, initially, the police did not file an FIR in the case. However, after a heavy protest by the locals, the police finally filed an FIR against Mohammad Daraj. Further investigation in the matter is underway.
