As per the case, the mother of the child after her husband’s death in 2009 had married Allen Christudoss, whom she had known for long in 2010. He had told her that he was a divorcee but later found that his first marriage to one Parimala was intact. However, she along with her daughter continued to life with him. Subsequently, her daughter informed that she was being sexually harassed by Allen and that he had caused physical injuries. But when she raised the issue with her husband, she was attacked by Allen.
