Teen kills father for raping married sister

Category: Gender based violence 

A teenager in India killed his father after discovering his dad had raped his sister, police have revealed.

The 19-year-old, from Jamnagar city in north west India's Gujarat state, strangled his father after learning of his sibling's ordeal, officers said.

Investigators say the boy's married sister, from a village in Jodiya Taluka, had called him to reveal the sexual assault.

She is said to have revealed that she had been attacked twice on Sunday morning.

According to the Times of India, police said the boy immediately returned home and asked his father about the allegation.

A heated row broken out before he strangled his father to death, police say.

P S Koringa, sub-inspector of Jodiya police station, told the newspaper: 'The rape survivor had returned to stay with her mother since one month due to troubled relationship with her husband in Devbhoomi Dwarka district

'Her father, who worked as casual labourer, came home once every 10-15 days.'

The teenage suspect has been arrested.

It is the latest shocking rape allegation to hit the headlines in India.

In 2015 alone, there were 34,000 reported cases of rape in the country, though that number is likely to be far higher since many do not go to the police for fear they will not be believed, or will be shunned by their community.

Marital rape is also not considered a crime, further adding to the number of unreported cases. In 2014 there were around 14,000 reported cases of child rape.

The most infamous rape case in modern Indian history took place in New Delhi in 2012, when intern Jyoti Singh was brutally attacked on a bus by six men who - among other things - violated her with a steel pole.

She was taken to hospital but died almost two weeks later from internal injuries, sparking nationwide protests.
