The father of an eight-month-old rape victim allegedly chopped off both hands of the 17-year-old accused in Punjab’s Bathinda district, India on Tuesday, April 19.
Parminder Singh had allegedly raped the man’s 7-month-old daughter in April 2014 and was arrested and arraigned in court.
The victim’s father and the accused, who were neighbours, met in court for the hearing yesterday and after that, the victim’s father reportedly asked Parminder to reach a compromise and accompany him on his motorcycle to the village.
When they reached near Jhumba village, he allegedly tied the teenager to a tree and attacked him with a sharp-edged weapon. Besides inflicting injuries on his head and other parts of his body, the man chopped off both his hands, said police.
Some villagers rushed Parminder to the Bathinda civil hospital, where his condition was stated to be critical. Dr Ajay Gupta, who treated the victim, said both his hands were chopped off and cops brought the limbs later.
“He (the father) took him near a dried up canal, beat him up badly and then tied him to a tree and finall hacked his hands off. There is nothing below the wrists now,” Swapan Sharma, a police officer of Bathinda, told AFP by telephone.
“Locals alerted the police and we rushed to the spot. We picked him up, his hands, and took him to the hospital,” Sharma added.
According to Indian Express, the mother of the baby had allegedly found the accused molesting her child in April 2014. Police registered a rape case and the teen was sent to a juvenile remedial home pending trial.
The police said a case of attempted murder has been registered against the victim’s father, a brick kiln labourer, who fled after the incident.
