A 20-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping a 100-year-old grandmother in her own bedroom in India.
The incident occurred at a village in Nadia district, West Bengal, eastern India.
Family members were alerted after hearing calls for help from the elderly woman’s room. They found the 20-year-old suspect, identified as Argha Biswas, hiding underneath the elderly woman’s bed, and he was arrested shortly afterwards.
The centenarian woman was taken to a hospital following the alleged incident but was discharged on Wednesday.
Speaking after the incident, the woman’s granddaughter, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘I heard some strange noises.
When I looked through the window, I immediately called others to help when I saw my grandmother.’
The suspect, Biswas told reporters that he was ‘under the influence of alcohol and did not know what I was doing,’ when questioned about the accused crime.
