Bhanu Valve Vs. State
O R D E R
Heard learned counsel
for the petitioner.
This petition has been
filed against the impugned judgment of the Bombay High Court dated
27.07.2010 by which the High Court has upheld the conviction of the petitioner by
the trial court. The facts in detail have been set out in the impugned judgment,
and hence we are not repeating the same here. The High Court and the trial
court have discussed the evidence in great detail, and we entirely agree with the
view they have taken.
This is one of the
most barbaric and heinous cases we have come across in our judicial career. The
petitioner has been found guilty of raping his own daughter regularly for five
years after his wife left him, and has produced a child from her. This kind of
unheard behaviour cannot be condoned by any means. The daughter-PW-1
(prosecutrix) has given her evidence in this case, and we see no reason to disbelieve
her. The special leave petition is dismissed accordingly.
