Youth gets two years for molesting cousin

A youth has been sentenced to two years in jail by a Delhi court for kidnapping and molesting his minor cousin after confining her in a room for seven days.

Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau held 20-year-old Rohan guilty of taking away his 13-year-old first cousin without her parents’ permission and trying to make physical relations with her and outraging her modesty.

‘Convict Rohan is not a habitual criminal but his act of enticing and alluring his minor cousin and taking her away from the lawful guardianship of her parents with intent to force or seduce her to illicit intercourse, is morally, socially, outrageous and legally impermissible,’ the judge said. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on him.

According to the prosecution, Kalyanpuri resident Rohan had kidnapped the victim, daughter of his mother’s sister, when she was coming back home from her school on the pretext of taking her to the zoo here in March this year.

After visiting zoo, he took the girl to a room built outside a public toilet in Narela, confined her there for seven days and attempted to rape her, it said.
