Man molested 12-year-old daughter and threatened to kill wife
A 43-year-old security guard was sentenced to four years and three months jail and given five strokes of the cane after admitting to two charges each of molestation and criminal intimidation. Two other charges were also taken into account during sentencing.
Said Deputy Public Prosecutor (DPP) Kavita Uthrapathy, the man would wait till his family was asleep or took the opportunity when no one was at home to send text messages to his daughter to go to his room. He would then molest her.
The victim was accompanying her grandmother to the clinic on 29 June last year when her grandmother asked why she was crying. The girl then showed her grandmother some of the text messages she had received from her father, and claimed that he had been molesting her for some time.
Meanwhile, the man had also threatened to kill his 34-year-old wife on 24 September 2014. He had pointed a knife at the wife and chased her along the corridor outside their house on 29 June 2016. It is known that the couple are undergoing divorce proceedings.
The accused cannot be named so as not to identify his victims.
