The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: A spe­cial Pro­tec­tion of Chil­dren from Sex­ual Of­fences (POCSO) Act court on Thurs­day con­victed and sentenced a man to seven years im­pris­on­ment for sex­u­ally as­sault­ing his mi­nor daugh­ter.

Her mother told the court that at the time of the in­ci­dent in July 2015, the child was eight. She said she lived in the house with her hus­band and two chil­dren. The woman said that while her hus­band was job­less and an al­co­holic, she worked as a do­mes­tic help at homes. She stated that while she worked at one home in the morn­ing and through the day, she worked at an­other at night.

She said that on July 3, 2015, when she re­turned from work in the af­ter­noon, she saw that her hus­band was drunk and her daugh­ter was cry­ing. The mother said that when she asked the rea­son, she told her that her fa­ther had sex­u­ally as­saulted her at night.

The woman said she took her daugh­ter to her mother’s house and re­turned to work. She said that when her brother re­turned home in the evening, they went to the po­lice sta­tion and lodged a com­plaint.

The child de­posed in court and it­er­ated her or­deal.
