A middle-aged man has been booked by the Sankheda police in Chhota Udepur for allegedly raping his daughter-in-law.  According to police, the incident happened a fortnight ago, but the 20-year-old survivor approached the police and filed a complaint on Saturday night.

In her complaint, she said that she had gone to their farm to give lunch to her father-in-law when he pulled her into the farm and raped her. He also threatened her of dire consequences if she informed anybody, she said in the complaint.

The survivor, however, informed her family and later insisted on approaching the police, after which the family filed a complaint. The accused, however, fled from the village and is yet to be arrested. He has been booked under IPC sections 376 (rape) and 506 (2) (punishment for criminal intimidation).

“Medical examinations are going on and a team is searching for the accused. The accused will be arrested soon. We are also recording statements of family members over the delay in approaching police in such cases,” said investigating officer AS Sarvaiya.
