Gurugram, September 11
In what highlights the plight of a mother, a Naharpur Roopa woman has moved police seeking cancellation of parole granted to her neighbour during COVID-19.
Threatening to commit suicide with her two daughters, the woman claims the accused has constantly been stalking, eve teasing and molesting them.
The man was jailed two years ago for allegedly stalking and molesting her elder daughter leading to the girl’s suicide.
He was, however, let out on parole after COVID-19 outbreak and has allegedly been stalking her other two daughters and molested one yesterday.
The victim claims that she and her daughters live in fear and has thus moved to police seeking help.
Following her complaint, an FIR has been registered at Sadar police station.
According to the complainant, the accused, Ranjit, is a distant relative who lives across the street.
He was let out in April this year and had been troubling them ever since. It was yesterday when he stalked, molested and thrashed her youngest daughter, a 15 year old, breaking her jaw.
“Two years ago my eldest daughter committed suicide as he would stalk her forcing her to marry him. We have been in shock ever since. He was sent to jail but when he came out owing to coronavirus he started troubling my other two daughters. I have to take them along with me everywhere as I can’t leave them alone and he follows and harasses us.
“My youngest daughter was going to buy milk when he stopped her on road and held her hand. She screamed and I ran out along with my husband but he punched my daughter breaking her teeth and fled. We are living in constant fear and may have to end our lives as we cannot talk about this stalking or eve-teasing anymore,” the mother of victim told police.
As per the complaint, an FIR has been registered against the accused under Section 12 of POCSO Act at Sadar police station.
“The accused is absconding but we are conducting raids to nab him. He will be arrested as early as possible,” said Inspector Dinesh Kumar, SHO of Sadar police station.
