A 51-year-old woman from Wadi in Nagpur caught her husband red-handed while molesting her 13-year-old daughter while the family members were asleep. The accused after getting caught on Saturday night (August 19, 2018), even thrashed the wife-daughter duo and threatened them of dire consequences. Sadly, this wasn’t the first incident that took place in the family. The accused had been molesting his daughter since six years ever since the latter’s mother, after the death of her first husband, married the accused.
After the wife revolted, her husband began thrashing his teenage daughter and wife. He even threatened them to not reveal anything about the incident. According to the police, the entire family was sleeping in the same room. The accused was sleeping next to the teenager. Around 11:45 pm, the wife woke up and found her husband in a compromising position with her daughter. That’s when the wife started fighting with her husband.
After the wife lodged a complaint at the Wadi Police Station, the accused was arrested under sections 354(A) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO). Senior PI Naresh Pawar told Nation Next, “We’ve filed a charge sheet against the accused and right now he is behind bars.”
