A 100-year-old woman has been allegedly raped by her 20-year-old neighbour in Nadia district of West Bengal when she was sleeping alone in her room. The accused has been arrested and sent to 14 days custody by a sub-division court.

The incident took place on Monday night. Police sources said the accused entered the woman’s house when she was sleeping alone in her room and raped her. However, the survivor’s cry for help woke up her neighbours, who saw the accused trying to escape through the window and raised an alarm.

The woman’s family members immediately informed the police, following which officials arrived and found the accused hidden under the bed and arrested him.

The survivor was initially taken to a local hospital and later shifted to a bigger hospital when her condition deteriorated. She was discharged on Wednesday.

While he was being taken to the court, the accused told reporters he was under the influence of alcohol. “I was under the influence of alcohol and did not know what I was doing. This is the first time I have done such a thing,” he said.
