A 26-year-old man has been sentenced to life imprisonment for repeatedly raping his ex-girlfriend in front of her two-year-old child. 

The accused was found guilty on four counts of rape by the Mothibistad Regional Court on Thursday. 

According to a police report, in April 2018, the accused broke into the house of his girlfriend, assaulted and raped her. 

"The ex-girlfriend sustained open cut wounds on her face. Subsequent to the incident the accused fled the scene, and he was on the run for three months."

The victim’s witness testimony and forensic evidence linked him with the crime.

He was kept in police custody until the case was finalized.
