Pathankot, November 9

In an incident which has enraged residents, a middle-aged man kept raping his step-daughter for four years before she gathered courage to speak out and file a police complaint against the "atrocities and sexual harassment" faced by her.

SSP Gulneet Singh Khurana said the accused was arrested within hours of the 17-year-old minor girl approaching the police. The police completed the probe within four days and submitted a challan in the court of the ilaqa magistrate on the fifth day. Officers said the recent Hoshiarpur incident in which a minor daughter of a Dalit family was raped and killed played on their mind.

The probe revealed that the accused Kans Ram of Mirthal village near Pathankot used to indulge in the heinous crime after giving sedatives to the mother of the girl.

The police took four days to complete the inquiry following which a case was registered against the accused. The very next day, the challan was filed, paving the way for the trial to commence. — TNS
