Mother-in-law of Manoj Kumar, who was arrested for allegedly raping a five-year-old girl in Delhi, has said he should be hanged for the “bestial act”, while his wife sought stringent punishment for him if the charge was true.


“He (Manoj) should be hanged for the bestial act,” the 22-year-old youth’s mother-in-law Nirmala Devi told PTI.

Manoj Kumar was arrested by a Delhi Police team with the help of district police from his in-law’s house in Chiknouta village in Muzaffarpur, about 50 km from Patna, late Friday night.

The youth’s wife Archana Devi, who is in deep shock over the incident, said if the charge was true, her husband should be given stringent punishment.

Archana and Manoj had a love marriage about an year ago. His father-in-law Bindeshwar Sah is in shock and did not open his shop for a couple of days.
