Since she was 10-years-old, she dreaded her uncle’s parole dates. Convicted for double murder for 10 years, her uncle would rape and harass her whenever he was allowed to come out of jail.

Six years later, the 16-year-old victim finally approached the Mahim police station and registered a complaint against her father’s brother and his wife.

In the past six years, the man tortured the girl by burning her with candles and repeatedly raped her.

According to police officers from Mahim police station, the girl in her complaint stated that her 46-year-old uncle on Tuesday raped her repeatedly after showing her porn clips at his house. She further said that since she was ten years old, he would rape her whenever he would come out of jail on parole.

The accused and his wife have been arrested for rape by a public servant, intimidation, assault and sections of the Protection Of Children Against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. “The accused is the chairman of an SRA co-operative society in Mahim, according to which he is bound by the same rules as a public servant,” said an officer from the Mahim police station.

His wife was arrested as she was aware of the crime and did not inform the girl’s family or the police.

“The girl finally mustered the courage to come to us as, she was scared that her uncle would rape her again,” said Milind Idekar, senior police inspector of Mahim police station.

On Thursday, the police arrested the accused and presented him before the court, where he was remanded to police custody. The police said that he had murdered two men in 2000. The court had sentenced him to ten years of jail for culpable homicide. However, he was released from jail in 2012. He had been raping his niece whenever he came out on parole since 2010.

“The accused had threatened the girl, and used to give her candle burns on her private parts so that she would not tell her parents,” said Idekar.
