Police arrested a 26-year-old man in Ahmedabad on Friday for allegedly raping his 15-year-old sister.
According to police, the accused had allegedly raped his younger sister — who had started living with him and his wife after their parents passed away — on multiple occasions.
“Around two and a half years ago, I was sleeping in my brother’s house when one night he forcibly raped me while his wife was sleeping in the other room. After that night, my brother raped me on multiple instances and when I protested, he used to beat me up. After that I started living in another area of Ahmedabad when three months ago in 2021 he again raped me. After that incident, I left the house and started living with my sister-in-law’s mother on rent in Ahmedabad,” said the girl in her complaint.
According to police, the girl approached them on June 16 after she told her sister in law (the accused’s wife) about the incident. Taking cognisance, police have booked the accused under IPC 376 for rape, 354A for sexual harassment and sections of the Protection of Children against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
“We have arrested the accused on Friday after the victim’s statement was recorded. Her medical examination has also been completed,” said incharge officer of the police station concerned.
