Mumbai : Two brothers in Mumbai have been arrested for allegedly repeatedly raping and impregnating their 13-year-old cousin for the past eight months when she used to be alone at home, police said.

The accused are a 22-year-old man and his 18-year-old sibling – who would frequent the home of their minor cousin in the Vikhroli area of northeast Mumbai, where she lived with her parents.

Not suspecting anything amiss, the parents, both working, permitted them to mingle freely with her and the brothers even visited her unhindered in the couple’s absence.

However, last Sunday, the victim’s mother noticed that the girl’s stomach was apparently protruding and asked her about it, but she did not respond properly.

The woman, worried, brought her daughter to a nearby hospital, where the doctors broke the heartbreaking news that the girl was 23 weeks pregnant.

The girl’s statement was recorded and an investigation into the startling case was launched after the shocked family later filed a complaint with Parksite Police Station.

The victim disclosed that, among other things, the elder cousin began raping her on several occasions in August, while the younger cousin had raped her initially in May. Before they molested and sexually assaulted her, they also made her watch explicit films and other materials.

Both the accused were arrested on Sunday and Monday and sent to custody. They have been slapped under charges of rape, gang-rape, sexual harassment on repeated occasions, showing objectionable video content and other offences under the IPC plus invoked various sections of the POCSO Act.
