Kollam: A man who was arrested for allegedly raping his 10-year-old granddaughter at Kundara near here has been remanded in judicial custody for two weeks.
Victor, who was arrested on Sunday – two months after the girl was found dead – was produced before a court here under heavy police security.

The public gathered on the court premises hurled abusive words at the accused.

Victor landed in police custody after his wife revealed to the police that her daughter and granddaughter had complained of abuse by him on several occasions.

The police said that the culprit began molesting the girl after her father left home a year ago and created opportunities to prey on the hapless victim.

Father alleges murder

Meanwhile, the father of the girl on Monday alleged that his daughter was murdered.

He said that the girl was forced to write the suicide note. He said his daughter did not know how to write in old script. He alleged that Victor admitted to sexually assaulting the girl fearing that he will be subjected to the lie-detector test.
“If a lie-detector test is conducted, it will be revealed that there are more people involved,” he said. He said the girl's body was found with her feet touching the ground.

Victor, a former aide of a prominent lawyer, had been working as the manager of a lodge. The postmortem report of the girl had said that she was subjected to sexual abuse even days before her death.
