A 19-year-old youth along with his father consumed alcohol on the night of Diwali and went to his sister’s room and forced himself on her after his father retired to his room for the night. This incident took place at their Farrukhnagar home.
The 15-year-old victim, who is a student of Class X, told her father about the incident the next day when her brother had left for work, following which his father immediately accompanied the girl and approached the police.
The girl’s father in his statement to the police said, “I have been residing at our Farrukhnagar house with my four children — three daughters and a son. My wife, who is mentally ill, has been missing from past many years. On Wednesday, after performing puja at our house, my son and I consumed alcohol.
“My eldest and youngest daughter were sleeping in one room while my 15-year-old daughter was sleeping alone in one room. As I had got very drunk, I retired to my room to sleep. My son was still consuming alcohol when I went to bed. After a while, he went inside the room where the 15-year-old was sleeping and raped her.”
An FIR under Section 6 of the POCSO Act was registered against the youth at Manesar’s women police station after the medical examination confirmed that she was rape. The accused was arrested by Thursday afternoon.
SHO Kanta Yadav said, “We were shocked that a brother could rape his sister and in his confession justified it by saying that he was drunk. He was produced in a city court on Thursday and sent to judicial custody.”
