Man arrested for raping 14-year-old stepdaughter in Ochira
Ochira: The police here arrested a 42-year-old man for molesting his 14-year-old stepdaughter. The culprit is married and has children. However, he was living with a divorced woman who is the victim’s mother. The accused, a native of Vallikkunnam, was produced at the court on Monday.
After being sexually abused by her stepfather, the girl informed her mother about the incident. The girl’s mother then admitted her into an orphanage in Alappuzha district. However, the man brought the girl back home and continued to molest her.
When the girl refused to go home from the orphanage, teachers there inquired with her and she explained the situation. The orphanage authorities then alerted the Alappuzha Sisu Kshema Samithi (Child Welfare Committee).
Based on their complaint, Thrikkunnappuzha police filed a case against the stepfather. As the incident took place under the jurisdiction of Ochira police, the case was transferred to them.
