A Delhi court sentenced a man to two years in jail for molesting his five-year-old daughter, saying the saviour has acted as a destroyer.

While holding Parshuram guilty of outraging the modesty of his minor daughter, additional sessions judge Nisha Saxena also imposed a fine of Rs. 5,000 on him.

“In the instant case a father who is required to protect his daughter, cast his lustful eyes on his minor daughter aged five years and allegedly committed rape upon her, which is one of the most extreme forms of child abuse and results in serious and long term psychological trauma,” the court said.

According to the prosecution, Parshuram, a resident of Karawal Nagar in Northeast Delhi, had allegedly raped his daughter several times in June 2010 when his wife had gone to her parental house following a fight between them.

It said that in the absence of his wife, the accused used to make her daughter sleep with him and thereafter would rape her. The victim had talked of her father’s behaviour to her mother when she returned home and they approached the police, it had said.

A case of rape was registered against the accused but the court convicted him for molesting the girl as the charge of rape could not be proved.
