"The act of pressing of breast of the child aged 12 years, in the absence of any specific detail as to whether the top was removed or whether he inserted his hand inside top and pressed her breast, would NOT fall in the definition of ‘sexual assault’.

“As such, there is no direct physical contact i.e. skin to skin with sexual intent without penetration”, the Court stated while acquitting him under the POCSO Act.
