BHATINDA (Punjab): Seeking revenge for the rape of his eight-month-old daughter, the father of the victim chopped off both hands of the accused youth in Punjab’s Bhatida District yesterday.

The 17-year-old was accused of raping the man’s eight-month-old daughter in April 2014.

Both accused and the victim’s father, who hail from Kotli Ablu village, were returning from the Bhatinda District court after the hearing when the latter asked the 17-year-old to accompany him on his motorcycle to the village, while they discussed about a compromise in the case.

When they were near Jhumba village, the victim’s father allegedly tied the youth to a tree and chopped off his hands below wrist with a sharp-edged weapon. He also inflicted other injuries on the youth’s body, besides cutting off his hands.

Reports say that the youth was rushed to a Bhatinda hospital while cops brought his limbs to the doctors later.

A case of attempt to murder has been registered against the infant’s father.
