UP: 81-year-old man arrested for 'digital rape' of minor girl

Lucknow, May 16: The Gautam Budh Nagar Police has arrested an 81-year-old man on the charges of ‘digital rape’ of a minor girl for over seven years.

According to the police, the accused is an artist by profession. The victim is the daughter of one of the accused’s workers and used to live with him to get a proper education. The suspect has been sexually exploiting the minor girl ever since.

“The girl was initially scared…in the past one month, she started recording the suspect’s sexual advances, mostly as audio files. She collected sizable evidence and shared her plight with a woman, who lived with the suspect who then lodged a complaint,” said additional deputy commissioner of police Ranvijay Singh.

Notably, ‘digital rape means sexually assaulting an individual using any object other than the reproductive organ. It did not fall under the ambit of rape till 2012 but was added after the Nirbhaya case in the same year.
