In yet another heart-wrenching incident, a 5-year-old minor girl was raped by her father near Javulake-Vani village in Maharashtra’s Nashik district.

The incident occurred when the accused identified as Sachin Shinde (26) returned home on Friday night and reportedly raped his 5-year-old daughter.

Following this, accused mother and victim’s grandmother killed her grand-daughter to cover up her son’s crime.

Police said Anusaya victim’s grandmother has witnessed the incident and strangled the girl to cover the incident and save his son from the Police.

The body of the girl was later dumped behind a school building near their house to hide the incident.

It was said that when the incident took place victim’s mother was not present at home.

However, Police has registered the case against the accused under the sections of section 376 (rape), Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act-2012 (POCSO). On the other hand, Shinde’s mother was booked under the charges of murder.
