The special court for cases registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences, directed submission of the papers to the Supreme Court to uphold the ruling.
The offender took advantage of the kinship relationship that he had with the victim’s father to commit a crime without taking into account the relationship of kinship as the girl’s uncle.
