The Kerala police team, probing the alleged rape and suicide of a 10yearold girl, is investigating the role of the victim’s father in the case.
The man was reportedly arrested in 2015 for molesting his daughter, who committed suicide on January 15, and served prison sentence for nearly a month. However, there were reports that said the case was fabricated and he was falsely implicated.
Meanwhile, the police have taken nine people, including the child’s mother, into custody over the alleged rape and suicide of the girl. The girl was found hanging from the window frame of her house on January 15 and postmortem report had revealed that she was sexually abused.
However, no strong action was taken until March 15, when one of her relatives was taken into custody. Kundara sub inspector of police has been suspended and a special team has also been constituted to investigate the case.
