Man booked for sexually harassing 14-yr-old daughter

Ludhiana, April 13

The PAU police registered a case against a man for sexually harassing his 14-year-old daughter.

The accused have been identified as Puneet Jain of Gold Link apartments and his relative Amit Jain.

The wife of Puneet Jain told the police that in 2018, she along with her daughter and husband lived in Ludhiana. “Now we live in Maharashtra. In 2018, I used to visit the houses of students to give private tuitions. My daughter used to be alone at home and my husband, finding her alone at home, had sexually harassed her many a times,” she added.

The woman said when the all family members shifted to Maharashtra, her daughter revealed that her father had sexually harassed her for two continuous years and also threatened to kill her if she revealed anything to the police.

The woman had submitted a complaint to the Pune police, which registered a FIR under various sections of the IPC and POCSO Act against the girl’s father Puneet Jain and uncle Amit Jain. Since the accused belong to Ludhiana, the Pune police shifted the case for further investigation to the Ludhiana police. The police here registered a fresh FIR and initiated probe. — TNS
