Father gets 2 years for molesting minor

New Delhi:Jan 6, 2013, PTI

A man has been sentenced to two years in jail for molesting his five-year-old daughter by a Delhi court. The court said the “saviour has acted as a destroyer”.

While holding Parshuram guilty of outraging the modesty of his minor daughter, additional sessions judge Nisha Saxena also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on him.

“A father who is required to protect his daughter casts his lustful eyes on her and allegedly committed rape,” the court said.


“It is the most extreme form of child abuse and results in serious and long-term psychological trauma,” it added.

According to the prosecution, Parshuram, a resident of Karawal Nagar in north-east Delhi, had allegedly raped his daughter several times in June 2010 when his wife had gone to her parental house following a fight between them.

It said in the absence of his wife, the accused used to make her daughter sleep with him and thereafter would rape her.

The victim narrated the incident to her mother when she returned home, and they approached police.

A case of rape was registered against the accused, but the court convicted him for molesting the girl as the charge of rape could not be proved.

The court also rejected the convict’s plea for leniency.

“In the instant case a biological father has outraged the modesty of his own little daughter. A saviour has acted as a destroyer,” the judge said.

“The convict in this case deserves to be given a deterrent punishment as any leniency shown to him would not only encourage further escalation of such crime, but would also implicit the modesty of several innocent girls,” added the judge.
