Vadodara: A 58-year-old man was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment after being found guilty of raping a two-and-a-half-year old girl in 2014.The convict Harendra Mishra had raped the girl when she had gone to play at his house.
When the girl returned to her house, she complained to her mother of severe pain in the private parts.
Initially, the girl's mother did not pay heed but when she repeatedly complained, she asked her if she had fallen down at Mishra's house.
The girl then told her mother that Mishra had touched her private parts when his wife was in the kitchen.
The girl then described the ordeal and it was revealed that Mishra had raped the girl for four days.
Additional public prosecutor Santosh Patel demanded maximum punishment for Mishra saying that his crime was proved beyond any doubt.
Additional district judge M M Babi while delivering the judgement said that the girl considered Mishra her grandfather and yet he committed an act which is of inferior level as well as disgusting without considering the age of the rape survivor.
The court sentenced Mishra to 10 years of simple imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000 was imposed on him for the crime.
