Woman helps boyfriend to sexually assault daughter


The accused exploited girl for over a year, say police



In a heinous act, a woman reportedly helped her boyfriend to allegedly sexually assault her minor daughter at Paritala village.

The victim's mother (aged about 35 years) reportedly was in a relationship with a 50-year-old lorry driver, T. Rambabu, of Paritala village in Krishna district.

The woman allegedly abetted the crime and Rambabu had been allegedly sexually assaulting the minor girl since a year. Following a complaint lodged by the victim’s grandmother, the Kanchikacherla police registered a case on Friday, said Nandigama Deputy Superintendent of Police S. Ramana Murthy.
