TN: Two teenaged-sisters raped for six-months; 2 held
Salem: Two teenaged sisters, reportedly abandoned by their parents, were allegedly raped over a six-month period by two men at their house where they were working as maids, police said on Monday.
The siblings, aged 16 and 13, were with their grand-mother who died six months ago and since then they were working as servants at the house of one 59-year-old Nagasamy, they said.
Nagasamy and his relative Chandran (40) allegedly raped them, police said, adding that the girls escaped from their clutches and were found by a service organisation wandering at the bus-stand here.
The matter came to light after the organisation`s volunteers questioned them.
A case under IPC section 376 (rape) and Women`s Harassment Act was registered and the two men were arrested today, police said.
The girls were handed over to the `Childline` service organisation.
On December 22, a 13-year-old girl was found murdered at Syedunganallur, about 30 km from Tuticorin. Injury marks on the body of class VII student gave rise to suspicion of rape and a 35-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
