The accused also lives in the same house with them.

According to the prosecutor, the victim usually takes her bath late in the evening and the accused took advantage of that situation and defiled her on three occasions. Sometime in December 2010, the victim was taking her bath and left the door to the bathroom ajar, the accused, who had gone to urinate, saw the victim and went and held her tight, covered her mouth and defiled her.

After the act, the accused gave the victim 50 pesewas and told her not to tell anyone.

The victim continuously developed abdominal pains and could not walk well, therefore when the complainant quizzed her she refused to disclose her ordeal but rather informed the complainant's son. A report was lodged with the Police and accused was arrested while the Police issued a medical form to the victim for examination and treatment. 15 March 11
