Kottayam: Father of a 10-year-old girl, who was sexually abused by a grocer at Kurichi in Kottayam, has ended his life heartbroken over his daughter's plight. It is said that the child’s father was devastated after the girl was sexually abused. He was found dead on Monday.
Yogi Dakshan, a 74-year-old man, who was running a grocery store in Changanassery, was arrested for molesting the minor girl on Saturday. The girl was molested when she reached the shop to buy items. He offered sweets to the girl to avoid disclosing it.
Police said, the accused used to misbehave with her whenever she reached the shop. It came to light after her parents questioned her about the reason why there was a change in her behaviour. The man was remanded after being produced before Kottayam mobile court.
