A 20-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping a 100-year-old grandmother at her home. Police said the alleged assault took place Tuesday while the victim was alone at her home in Chakolya village in Nadia, West Bengal. Police arrested Arga Biswas, 20, shortly after the alleged sexual assault after family members found the suspect.
The 100-year-old granddaughter, who did not want to reveal her name, said, “I heard strange noises but when I looked through the window, I immediately called others for help when I saw my grandmother.”
Indian police arrested the suspect immediately and after a preliminary court hearing he is now in judicial custody 14 days before another hearing takes place. When asked about the crime attributed to him, Biswas told reporters outside the court that he was “under the influence of alcohol and he doesn’t know what I’m doing.”
The victim was hospitalized following the alleged accident, but was discharged. Rupesh Kumar, a senior police officer, said, “She was sleeping alone in her house. The house was not locked to the culture of the village. Her family members found the man when she asked for help.
