High Court jails lustful man

THE High Court in Lautoka last week sentenced a tour driver to more than six years imprisonment for rape.
While sentencing Sajneel Ritesh Rao, Justice Aruna Aluthge said the accused chose to satisfy his lustful demands without having any regard to the complainant who was pregnant at that time.
“You have used a degree of force and exploited a vulnerable woman who was alone at home when her husband left for work,” Justice Aluthge said.
The incident occurred in January 2013 in the Western Division.
Rao will serve a period of five years in prison before he can be released for parole.
