An Indian father never escaped the grips of the law as he was slapped with a life sentence for raping his own 9 year old daughter.
The young innocent child is said to have been got drunk by her dad, upon which the said father and his male friend took advantage of her.
His friend was also not let loose as he was handed down a 12-year sentence as disturbed Judge Gautam Manan blurted out in court stating; "Children are entitled to expect the best from their parents, in terms of care and parental love, that they can possibly receive. But the convict gave his daughter such a betrayal of faith of relationship that would really be difficult for her to forget.’
