A 20-year-old Indian man has been arrested for raping a 100-year-old Indian woman. Argha Biswas told the media that he was “under the influence of alcohol and did not know what I was doing.” Biswas will spend 14 days in jail before he’s granted another hearing reports the Daily Mail.
The sexual assault took place on Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018, in Chakuila village, Nadia, West Bengal, India. Biswas snuck into the 100-year-old’s home and allegedly raped her. The old woman cried for help and that’s when family members went to her room. That’s when they found Biswas hiding under her bed.
The unnamed granddaughter said, “I heard some strange noises. When I looked through the window, I immediately called others to help when I saw my grandmother.”
The police arrived and arrested Biswas at the scene of the crime. The 100-year-old grandmother was taken to the hospital and discharged the next day.
A senior police officer, Rupesh Kumar, said “She was sleeping alone in her home. The house wasn’t locked as the village culture.
“Her family members found the man when she cried for help.
“When we arrived, we found Argha Biswas under the bed, he was caught by the family members of the old woman.”
Biswas faces up to life in prison or the death penalty for his heinous act.
