Child rapist has hands chopped off by his victims father after courts fail to convict.
A father of a baby who was subjected to a horrific sexual attack by a rapist has taken revenge on the attacker after the courts failed to convict the man due to a ‘lack of evidence’.
The father committed the attack on the way back from court after justice was failed to be secured for his 7-month old daughter.
The New York Post reports that the incident occurred in India, where the man and the accused 17-year old boy both attended the court case which ended unsuccessfully in an acquittal of the accused.
“In court, the father said he was willing to forgive the teen and accept cash as compensation — even offering to drive the perv home to Kotli Ablu, a village in Punjab where they both live”
“But halfway through the trip, the father stopped the bike, tied the rapist to a tree, and hacked off his mitts with a machete.
“The father then fled, leaving the teen screaming for help before being found by locals.”
The accused teen thought he had gotten away with the crime as throughout the court proceeding the victims father stated how he was prepared to forgive him.
But whether he never meant what he said in court, or he had a sudden change of heart afterwards, his actions were not ones of forgiveness.
It is reported:
“the father reportedly indicated that he was prepared to forgive the teenager and accept a compensation deal to limit his punishment.”
“Halfway through the journey, the father apparently stopped the bike and attacked the teenager, tying him to a tree before chopping off his hands with a machete,”
The father now faces conviction and is currently on the run from police, although he is expected to be changed if and when he is caught.
Locals found the injured teenager where he was taken to a hospital and his wounds were treated, his condition was described as critical and it is not known if the boy will make a full recovery.
The severing of hands is a common form of retribution particularly in the Middle East and is usually reserved for people who are found to be thieves. But the ‘tradition’ sometimes finds its way into other cases such as this one where a girl’d hand was cut off by a man in a row over a phone charger.
