In Chhattisgarh, a man has been sentenced to 20 years for raping his step-daughter. Along with this, the fast track court of Raipur has sentenced the victim’s mother for the same number of years in the abetment case for rape. Special Public Prosecutor Morisha Naidu said that Rajiv Kumar, Judge of Additional and District Sessions (Fast Track Special Court), has imposed a fine of Rs 70 thousand on the stepfather.
The court has also imposed a fine of 50 thousand on his wife. This case of raping a 10-year-old stepdaughter came to light last year. The father raped the girl continuously between 2018 and April, 2019. The teenager made a written complaint to the police in May 2019, on the basis of which her mother and stepfather were arrested.
