Kochi: A teenaged daughter and her mother were made instruments to settle the debts taken by the head of the family. The 16-year-old girl and her mother were offered to the friend of the girl’s father as he could not repay the dues he had taken, according to reports.
The girl was raped multiple times at different locations. The mother and a relative have been arrested and the father and two others are absconding underground.
The girl gave a statement that she had been raped by father’s friend, a relative, since 2016. This happened at a farm house in Kollam many times.
Her mother confessed to being aware of it but did nothing to save her daughter. The girl’s grandmother took the teenager with her but the parents took her back to Thenmala near Kollam where their relative raped her.
