Women are fighting for their rights in the outside world but here is a case where a minor girl was raped by her own father. The Division Bench of the Madras High Court upheld the sentence given by the Mahila Court and sentenced the accused to life imprisonment.
While upholding the sentence, the Bench observed that no amount of compensation or no amount of punishment to the accused can undo the damage done to the innocent child. They felt that taking into consideration the magnitude of the offence, life imprisonment was inadequate. However their hands were tied by the legislators under the Posco Act and they were unable to enhance the sentence.
