After a heated exchange the 19-year-old allegedly strangled his dad
A man reportedly killed his father after his sister told him that he raped her.
Police said the woman told her 19-year-old brother that her father had attacked her twice at the family home in the village of Jamnagar’s Jodiya taluka
“The rape survivor had returned to stay with her mother since one month due to troubled relationship with her husband,” an inspector at Jodiya police station told The Times of India.
“Her father, who worked as a casual labourer, came home once every 10 to 15 days.”
After the woman told her brother, a heated altercation took place and he strangled his father to death.
The man has been detained by police.
More than 90 rapes are reported in India daily, according to the countries National Crime Records Bureau, though campaigners say the numbers are likely much higher.
Earlier this week a teenage girl accused a member of hospital staff in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh of giving her a sedative before sexuality assaulting her, prompting country-wide protest.
