A 75-year-old woman was allegedly sexually harassed by her son for the last two years in Punjab’s Gurdaspur.
Gurdaspur Police on Monday said that an elderly woman from Batala lodged a complaint with the police against her son.
According to the complaint lodged by the elderly woman, her son, 45-year-old, repeatedly raped her for the last two years under the influence of alcohol.
She told the police that she chose to remain silent on the issue believing that on lodging a complaint the incident would bring bad name to the family.
The incident came to surface, after she narrated her ordeal to one of her daughters visiting her on Friday. On learning the incident the victim’s daughter spoke to her siblings and all decided to lodge complaint against the accused.
“We have lodged an FIR on the basis of the complaint. Raids are being conducted to nab the accused son,” said a police official.
The police official told the media that the woman has four sons and three daughters and she had been living with the accused as all her other children were married and lived separately.
