Uncle raped girls before father joined in the act
Oct 12, 2010
NAGPUR: The city's Fritzl case, where a 15-year-old girl was raped by her father and found to be three months pregnant, has turned murkier with the maternal uncle also implicated in the crime. Police said the victim's elder sister, who is also a minor, has now alleged that the uncle had also indulged in a physical relationship with both sisters.
Last week, Dhantoli police had booked Ajay Agrawal for raping his minor daughter for over four months. The complaint was lodged by the victim's mother, and the absconding accused was arrested by the cops the next day. On Sunday night, cops also arrested Sheetal alias Chotu Kawde (27), who is the maternal uncle of the girls. Kawde, who works as a plumber, is a native of Brahmapuri village. Both the accused have been charged with rape, said a cop from Dhantoli police station.
According to the police, since the victim Meenal (name changed) was under depression, she had not revealed the abuse by her uncle. It was her elder sister, who is also a minor, who revealed everything.
The siblings thought it would affect their family's reputation and hence they had been silent.
After the fact was revealed, Kawde was called to the city by the cops. "We told him we wanted to hand over the girls to him and called him to Dhantoli. On questioning, he confessed and we arrested him," said PP Masad, police sub-inspector of Dhantoli police station.
