Delhi: Man rapes daughter-in-law on multiple occasions, held
Delhi Police have arrested a 52-year old man for raping his daughter in law on several occasions in central Delhi. According to the report, the victim married to accused’s son in March this year.
“We arrested the accused from his residence after registering an FIR under IPC sections 376 (rape), 343 (wrongful confinement), 323 (causing hurt) and 506 (threatening). He was produced in a Delhi court, which sent him to 14-day judicial custody,” DCP (central district) Mandeep Singh Randhawa told Indian Express.
In her complaint, the victim said, the incident took place for the first time merely after a month of her marriage, when she was alone at home. Her husband had gone to work and family members were out for some functions. The accused allegedly raped and threatened her for dire consequence if she tells anyone.
The woman further said, she informed her husband about the incident when he came back, but when confronted, the accused denied allegations and threatened to throw them out from the house.
“The woman alleged that in the days that followed, he raped her on multiple occasions and beat her up. She alleged that he confined her inside the house and handcuffed her,” an officer told the daily.
According to police, the incident came to light on October 14, when the victim sustained severe injuries after she was allegedly beaten up by the accused.
“The woman was taken to a hospital, where she requested doctors to call her mother, who eventually informed police about the incident. Police recorded the woman’s statement and arrested the accused,” an officer said.
