The Oshiwara police arrested a 27-year-old man on Thursday after his wife filed a complaint against him alleging he had raped their eight-month-old daughter. The police said a medical examination of the child ruled out rape, but confirmed injuries on her private parts.
According to the police, the couple got married one and a half years ago. However, since the man was unemployed and addicted to alcohol, his wife left him around 10 months ago and started living at her parents' place at Anand Nagar in Oshiwara, the police said. She also delivered the baby there, an officer said.
Police said the accused visited his wife often but she refused to meet him and didn't let him meet their daughter as well. Around 5 am on Monday, while his wife was asleep, the accused allegedly picked up the baby and boarded a bus towards his house in Ghatkopar. The woman woke up and informed her brother, who reached the accused's house before he did. Since her brother had informed the police, a team reached the spot and handed the child back to her mother.
Around two hours after the child was reunited with her mother, the latter returned to the police station claiming there were injury marks on the girl's private parts and alleged her husband had raped her.
"The doctors confirmed that there were injury marks on the girl's private parts after a medical examination but ruled out rape. A rape complaint was filed and further investigations are on," said D Rupawate, senior inspector, Oshiwara police station.
The police said the accused was produced before a court and remanded in police custody till Friday.
