‘I told my parents about rape recently’

A week after she went to the police to file an FIR against her brother-in-law for allegedly raping her when she was eight months pregnant, the retired IAS officer’s daughter, in her first comments to the media, told The Hindu, “I am pained by all the mudslinging that is doing the rounds… I only want justice.” With her teary-eyed mother by her side, she met this reporter briefly and narrated the ordeal of dowry and sexual harassment, and rape which allegedly took place in November 2014. She said, “I had a complicated pregnancy and following the delivery, I underwent a surgery.”

My parents were ill and I did not tell them about the incident. But I always had it at the back of my mind and I knew I would be guilty if I had not spoken out
