“He has been doing this to her for the last two days. She didn’t say anything to me at first,” the mother said. “She told me when I saw blood on her body and the bed. When I asked her father, he denied it at first but admitted it later, and sought an apology.”
Malek, who is a vagabond, was handed over to the police when locals got to know of the matter.
The mother filed a case against Malek under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act.
