Detectives of Chhattisgarh police station in central India have apprehended a middle-aged man for repeatedly raping his 70-year-old mother.
According to The Asian Age, the 40-year-old man was inebriated with alcohol when he carried out the incestuous act on his own mother.
Peeved by the abominable act, the mother told her daughter who then approached the country’s police, alleging that her son had repeatedly subjected her to rape and sexual abuse in a small town, Bemetara, in Chhattisgarh state.
According to a report filed, the man had habitually abused his mother physically, but last month, under the influence of alcohol, had sexually violated her.
The mother, while giving an account of what happened to the police, said she told him she was his mother and that she was the one who gave birth to him.
The septuagenarian said, “He did wrong with me. I told him you are my son, I gave birth to you. Don’t do this to me. But he didn’t hear a word. He will pay for this. God will not spare him.”
However, a police superintendent, Jyoti Singh, reportedly said, “It’s a heinous act. How can a man become so savage and go for such a brutal act.”
“He has been booked under section 375-376 of [the Indian Penal Code].”
Police did not disclose the identity of the accused to protect the victim’s identity.
