A 100-year-old woman was brutally raped allegedly by a 20-year-old youth in the middle of the night in West Bengal’s Nadia district, the police said today.
“The incident took place on Monday night. Argha Biswas alias Abhijit was caught by the family members of the old woman. A complaint was filed yesterday,” an officer of the Chakdah police station said.
The culprit from the Gangaprasadpur area has been arrested and has reportedly confessed, saying he committed the crime under the influence of alcohol.
A relative of the victim told News18 that the family found the victim covered in blood and caught the accused who hid under the bed when the woman raised an alarm.
The proceedings are going on and the centenarian has been released from the hospital after the required medical tests.
