NAGPUR:The girl was barely 13 when her uncle began raping her repeatedly at her native village. Wanting to escape the brutality, she asked her father, a widower, to take her to Nagpur.

But just when she thought she had escaped from the clutches of a beast, her own father too started sexually assaulting her.

Gurucharan Yadav, 35, the father of Reena (name changed), along with his brother Gayadin, 27, were, on Saturday, sentenced to life imprisonment for their brutal acts.

Gayadin even fathered a child from the victim. District and additional sessions judge AS Shiwankar, while pronouncing the judgment, labeled the case as one that exemplified 'fence eating the crop'.
