A 20-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a 100-year-old grandmother in her own bedroom in Nadia district, West Bengal, eastern India.
Family members were alerted after hearing calls for help from the elderly womanâ€™s room.
They found the suspect identified as Argha Biswas, hiding underneath the elderly womanâ€™s bed, and he was arrested shortly afterwards.
Speaking after the incident, the womanâ€™s granddaughter, who wished to remain anonymous, said:
â€˜I heard some strange noises.
When I looked through the window, I immediately called others to help when I saw my grandmother.â€™
The suspect, Biswas told reporters that he was â€˜under the influence of alcohol and did not know what I was doing,â€™ when questioned about the accused crime.
Rupesh Kumar, a senior police officer, said:
â€˜She was sleeping alone in her home. The house wasnâ€™t locked as the village culture.
â€˜Her family members found the man when she cried for help.
â€˜When we arrived, we found Argha Biswas under the bed, he was caught by the family members of the old woman.â€™
Biswas has appeared before a local court and will spend 14 days in judicial custody before another hearing takes place, according to Carters News Agency.
