“It Was A Case Of Fence Eating Into The Crop”; Bombay HC Upholds Conviction & Life Sentence Of Father Who Raped Minor Daughter Repeatedly

The Bombay High Court while upholding the conviction and life sentence of a father who raped his own minor daughter for over a year repeatedly, placed complete faith on the victim’s testimony, the medical evidence and observed that to her misfortune, her prime protector preyed on her as sexual predator. It was a case of fence eating into the crop, Court said. Court also held that the victim is entitled to compensation under the Victim Compensation Scheme framed by the State Government under Section 357-A of the Code and made a recommendation to the State Legal Services Authority to award appropriate compensation to the victim under the scheme.
