Minor raped by mother's lover

A 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her mother’s paramour recently in Vyalikaval. The duo vanished after the girl became pregnant.

They are reportedly hiding in Tamil Nadu and the police are looking out for them. Namitha, a resident of 2nd Cross, Maruthinagar, Vyalikaval, parted ways with her husband two years ago. Her husband, a labourer, stays with their son in Vyalikaval, police said.

She then began courting Shankar. During his visits to her house, he intimidated Namitha’s daughter, studying in class VIII in a private school, and sexually assaulted her, leading to her pregnancy. 

Undertrial ends life

Manivarma alias Mani, 51, a resident of Srinagar and an undertrial, allegedly hanged himself at the Bangalore Central Prison in Parappana Agrahara on Wednesday.

According to the police, Mani went to the bathroom near Barrack 7 and hanged himself from a water pipe using a towel around 7.15 am. Some prisoners noticed him hanging and informed the wardens who rushed him to Victoria Hospital, where doctors declared him dead on arrival.

Mani was involved in murder and dacoity cases in the Hanumanthanagar police limits. He was sent to prison on August 22, 2011. His body was shifted to the Victoria Hospital mortuary for an autopsy.
