Ahmedabad: A 35-year-old woman has filed a complaint against her father-in-law and brother-in-law, accusing them of raping her repeatedly over the past three years, in Halvad taluka of Surendranagar district.

Police Sub-Inspector A P Patel told PTI that both the men had been arrested and sent to judicial custody.

The victim did not file a complaint earlier due to family pressure. She approached the police last evening, he said.

The complainant has said that Rajesh Ramanuj (42), her brother-in-law, and Sevadas Ramanuj (75), the father-in-law, allegedly abused her sexually, justifying it on the pretext of her husband`s impotency.

Since the couple lived in a joint family, her husband supported his father and brother, the woman alleged.

She has been sent to a women`s shelter home while further investigations are on.
