Brothers raped by stepfather a year apart; accused arrested

Two brothers, both in their teens, were allegedly raped by their stepfather one year apart.

The Delhi Police said it has arrested the accused, a 46-year-old hotel staffer, from his home in East Delhi. He allegedly targeted the children in the absence of their mother and committed unnatural offences against them, according to police. The accused has been booked under charges of the POCSO Act, assault, and unnatural offences.

Police said the accused had married the boys’ mother a year ago. The first complaint was received against him last February when the younger boy alleged he had been repeatedly raped by the accused.

“A complaint was made by the family. The man was arrested within a few days and sent to jail, and a chargesheet was filed. He even spent 10-12 months in judicial custody but was later released on bail. We came to know that during the trial, the victim turned hostile…,” said an officer who refused to be named.
