New Delhi, Aug 25 (PTI):
A 35-year-old woman has alleged that she was raped by her 73-year-old landlord while her minor daughter was molested by his son at their rented accommodation, police said on Wednesday.
A case was registered on a complaint of the victim, police said, adding no arrest has been made yet as investigation into the matter is on.
Police said the woman had shifted to the rented accommodation just three months ago.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that on Tuesday evening, while she was present at first floor of her house, the landlord came there and raped her.
Thereafter, when her 12-year-old daughter was alone at home, the landlord’s son came there and molested her daughter, the senior police officer said.
Based on the woman’s statement, a case was registered under Sections 376 (punishment for rape), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and other relevant provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, the officer said.
“We are looking into the allegations levelled by the complainant and further investigation in the case is underway,” he said.
