Man booked for molesting differently-abled teen daughter in Vijayawada
Police filed a case against a man under Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) act for allegedly molesting her differently-abled daughter for the last two years in Nuzvid, Krishna district, on Saturday.
The accused, Thummandu Venkateswar Rao, 40, is an alcoholic. Rao has two daughters and a son. According to Nuzvid police, her mother and some relatives knew about it but they kept quiet and gave repeated warnings to Rao in the past. Recently, the victim went to her relatives house and told them about her ordeal. The 14-year old victim, the younger daughter of the accused, used to stay at home.
The victim’s elder sister, a class 10 student, told her mother about the molestation attempt by Rao on the differently abled girl, but in vain. Finally, the victim along with her elder sister approached Nuzvid police on Friday night and gave a written complaint.
