A 40-year old man was sentenced to life imprisonment on Saturday for continuously raping his minor daughter.
A special judge of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) court Girish Kumar Aggarwal convicted the man, a resident of Kaithun area of Kota district, on Saturday under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the POCSO Act, said Special Public Prosecutor (SSP) Kamal Kant Sharma.
The court also penalised him of Rs 50,000, he added.
The victim’s mother along with her three children had been living separately from her husband since 2017 as he used to torture her daily, the SPP said.
But the convict brought back his minor daughter and younger son while promising to take care of them, he said.
He repeatedly raped his daughter for several months at his resident, the SSP said.
The matter came to mother’s insight when the minor victim narrated her unfortunate and dreadful condition to her mother, following which her mother decided to lodge a complaint on 29 May 2018, Sharma said.
The police arrested the man on 4 June, 2018, while acting on the complaint filed by the victim’s mother and submitted a charge sheet in the POCSO court on 4 July, he added.
