A 34-year-old man from Mumbai’s Govandi has been arrested for sexually assaulting his 21-year-old sister-in-law. City’s Shivaji Nagar police arrested him on Friday from Baiganwadi locality.

The survivor told police in her statement that she and her brother-in-law were alone at home last year in the month of June, when he took advantage of the situation and sexually assaulted her.

According to the police, the woman’s ordeal did not stop at that. He again molested her and used to threaten to drive her out of the house by asking his brother to divorce her if she ever revealed the episodes to anyone.
