In a horrifying twist to the Mira Road case where a 49-year-old allegedly raped his daughter over a period of nine years, it has now emerged that the mother of the girl was forced to stand and watch as her husband abused their daughter.

It was reported on Thursday that Kishore Chauhan, 49, had not been doing well in his business and consulted a Vile Parle-based tantrik, Hasmukh Rathod, 55, in 2000 who advised that sexual intercourse with his daughter (now 21 years old) would solve his problems. Last year, in November the tantrik began to rape the couple’s younger daughter, who is 15 years old. The matter came to light when the couple and the tantrik were arrested on Wednesday after the girls approached their uncle and grandmother, who lodged a complaint.

On Thursday, Chauhan’s brother-in-law, Vijay Parmar said that his sister had been brainwashed by the tantrik and her husband into allowing the sexual abuse. The mother was forced to watch the younger daughter’s rape as well, he said.

Parmar, an Andheri-resident, said, “My sister Anjana was asked to stand naked while her husband would have intercourse with his eldest daughter, all on the advice of the Rathod. She was brainwashed by my brother-in-law and Rathod. She obeyed because she wanted her husband to become rich and successful in his business.”

Parmar added that Chauhan was an interior decorator and in 2002 he bagged a housekeeping contract at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. When the contract was not renewed, Chauhan started a radium number plate embossing business at Andheri in 2007.

However, he suffered heavy losses and ran up huge debts.

Parmar said Anjana hailed from Rajkot, while Chauhan belonged to Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh and the two were married in 1987. Meanwhile, the three accused were remanded to police custody till March 21 by the Thane Sessions Court on Thursday noon.

Dr Yusuf Macchiswala, psychiatrist J J Hospital said, “This is a case of sexual perversion. The tantrik in this case forced his desire on the follower, so he could perform the same act in future.

“They are sexually hyperactive and are also involved in weird sexual acts like group sex. Some people are ready to go to any extent to gain success. These tantriks take advantage of such depressed and frustrated people. They even hypnotise or drug their followers to put them through such acts. The followers end up doing such acts in blind faith.”
