I have been living on rent since then in different areas of Ahmedabad. Around two-and-a-half years ago, I moved into my brother's house. At night on January 29, 2019, I was sleeping in my room, when one night he forcibly raped me while his wife was sleeping in the next room. After that night, my brother raped me on multiple occasions. When I protested, he used to beat me up. After that, I started living in another area of Ahmedabad. But again, three months ago, he raped me. After that incident, I left the house and started living with my sister-in-law’s mother on rent in Ahmedabad." Police arrested the accused under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 for rape and 354A for sexual harassment, and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
