Father gets jail term for sexually assaulting 15-year-old daughter

A Delhi court has sentenced a man to three years in jail for sexually assaulting his minor daughter, holding him guilty under the newly enacted child protection act.

Additional sessions judge Dharmesh Sharma awarded the jail term to the 45-year-old vagabond, who used to sexually assault his 15-year-old daughter under the influence of drugs, after holding him guilty under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

‘In view of the testimony of the victim and the attending facts and circumstances of the case, I find that prosecution has been able to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt that the accused with sexual intent touched the girl child.

‘Mere fact that he did so under state of intoxication or effect of drug is no excuse as such state of mind was self induced and accused must be taken to know that what he was doing was wrong and immoral,’ the judge said.
