KOLKATA: Three brothers — Debabrata Mondal, Himadri Mondal and Seshadri Mondal — all in their late twenties were arrested on charges of sexually assaulting their cousin for the last 13 years, when her parents went out for work. The woman — now 24 – and her tormentors lived in the same house as they were part of a joint family.
In her complaint, lodged at Regent Park police station, the woman, a college student, alleged that since 2007, when she was only 11, the three sons of her uncles sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions and forcibly made her watch pornographic movies on several occasions when her parents were away for work.
“The woman has complained that the men, who are five to seven years older than her, even threatened her with dire consequences and physically tortured her in her room. This prevented her from telling anyone about the ordeal. She first spoke about the torment to some of her college friends who backed her up and encouraged her to lodge a complaint,” said a senior officer of Kolkata Police.
Cops probing the case arrested all the accused on Sunday and booked them under IPC sections of rape, criminal intimidation, physical assault and criminal intimidation.
(The victim’s identity has not been revealed to protect her privacy as per Supreme Court directives on cases related to sexual assault)
