Manjunath, the driver in the education department, Bangalore has been accused by his mother-in-law of raping his 10-year-old daughter from his first wife.
According to the police, 11 years ago, Manjunath had married Nagaveni and they had a daughter. Five years ago, Nagaveni vanished, and it was presumed that she had eloped with her boyfriend. Later, Manjunath married again and the girl continued to live with Manjunath and his second wife.
But Manjunath’s mother-in-law has lodged a complaint to the police stating that his son-in-law has sexually abused her granddaughter for over two years. She also lodged the complaint against Manjunath’s brother Harish and friend Kutty who also played their part in sexually abusing her.
The girl was then taken to the hospital for a medical checkup.
Jnanabharati inspector B T Chidananda Swamy said, “We are waiting for the medical reports. The girl gave a statement that her father raped her, while the two others had been sexually abusing her for the past two years”
