Father gets 2 years for molesting 5-year-old

A man has been sentenced to two years in jail for molesting his five-year-old daughter by a Delhi court which said the saviour has acted as a destroyer.

While holding Parshuram guilty of outraging the modesty of his minor daughter, Additional Sessions Judge Nisha Saxena also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 upon him.

‘Intheinstantcaseafatherwhoisrequiredtoprotect his daughter, cast his lustful eyes on his minor daughter aged five years and allegedly committed rape upon her, which is one of the most extreme forms of child abuse and results in serious and long term psychological trauma,’ the court said.

According to the prosecution, Parshuram, a resident of Karawal Nagar in north east Delhi, had allegedly raped his daughter several times in June 2010 when his wife has gone to her parental house following a fight between them. It said in the absence of his wife, the accused used to make her daughter sleep with him and thereafter would rape her. The victim had told the facts to her mother when she returned home and they approached the police, it had said.

A case of rape was registered against the accused but the court convicted him for molesting the girl as the charge of rape could not be proved. The court also rejected the convict’s plea for leniency in sentencing. ‘In the instant case a biological father has outraged the modesty of his own little daughter aged five years. Convict in this case deserves to be given a deterrent punishment as any leniency shown to him would not only encourage further escalation of such crime but would also implicit the modesty of several innocent girls,’ the judge said.


COURT RESTRAINS HUSBAND FROM CONTACTING ESTRANGED WIFE


A Delhi court has restrained a man from communicating with his estranged wife or visiting her and asked him to pay her and their daughter a monthly alimony of Rs 5,000. The court also asked him not to harass his wife who had filed a petition under the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act and sought maintenance saying she was being tortured by her husband and in-laws for dowry. ‘Complainant (wife) has alleged that respondent harassed her mentally and physically. She has filed various complaints before the police and the Crime Against Women Cell. Upon the basis of controverted and unrebutted testimony, she has proved that respondent has treated her badly and commits domestic violence upon her,’ it said.
