Mumbai man held for molesting daughterMay 20th, 2012 - 11:59 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 20 (IANS) A worker in an imitation jewellery warehouse was arrested here Sunday for molesting his 18-year-old daughter for the past three years, police said.
The last time Harishankar Patawa molested his daughter was May 2. His wife gave a police complaint against him Sunday.
He lives with along with his wife, two daughters and a son in a slum in Malwani in northwest Mumbai.
According to police, Patawa first molested his older daughter in the absence of her mother in November 2009 when she was away to her hometown in Uttar Pradesh.
The victim later told her mother about the harassment who quarrelled with Patawa. The worker, however, continued to molest his daughter whenever he got an opportunity.
“It still took the woman a long time to muster courage to complain against her husband. The family had been looking for a solution for a long time,” said a police official.
“The victim’s mother sought advice from friends and relatives and finally approached us, following which Patawa was arrested,” the official said.
Patawa was booked for assault or criminal force to woman with the intention to outrage her modesty. He would be presented in a court Monday.
