The daughter, 19, attempted suicide, before registering a police complaint
A 40-year-old Indian man allegedly drugged his 19-year-old daughter with sleeping pills, and then raped her, in the Indian city of Bengaluru last week. Today, news reports about the June 23 incident, have left Indian Twitter user horrified.
Reports say that the father gave his daughter sleeping pills instead of medicines for cold, and then raped the teen at their home in Haralur, Bengaluru.
According to local news reports, the teen told the police that she had been suffering from cough and cold, when she told her father about this, he gave her sleeping pills. When she woke up the next morning, she found her father sleeping next to her, and realised that she had been sexually assaulted.
The girl also said that she attempted suicide, by consuming a toilet-cleaning chemical. She then went to a police station by herself to register a complaint about the heinous crime.
Yesterday’s news reports said the police officials were waiting for her to recover.
However, acting on her complaint, the police arrested the father, and said that the role of the stepmother is also being probed.
Saying that such cases were a result of delayed justice or lack of death penalty for rape, @JaiPrakashAlbe2 tweeted: “India is unsafe for women, since there is no justice and death penalties for those evil hearts.”
And, Facebook user Ritvesh Gupta posted: “Coronavirus can come and go, but there is no solution to the epidemic that rape has become in India.”
