HYDERABAD: A local court has awarded life imprisonment until death to a 40-year old-labourer after convicting him of raping and impregnating his 17-year-old daughter at Petbasheerabad in 2017.
On Wednesday, a local court in LB Nagar sentenced the convict to undergo life imprisonment until death and also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000. On October 25 four years ago, Petbasheerabad police received a complaint from the girl how her father had raped her for several months when she was staying with him.
The girl’s mother died 11 years ago. After the girl’s elder sister got married, the accused took advantage of the situation and raped her for 10 months. When she told him about her pregnancy, he gave her pills after consulting a doctor and got her pregnancy terminated, Petbasheerabad inspector S Ramesh said.
