In a shocking incident, the London Police arrested a paedophile for allegedly raping a 10-year-old girl for a period of six years.
According to a Deccan Chronicle report, the minor was raped twice almost every day from the age of 10 to 16. 

The accused, identified as Keith Downend, is currently serving an imprisonment of 19 years after he pleaded guilty. 

 “He robbed me of my childhood. I was raped time and time again, often twice a day,” Deccan Chronicle quoted the victim as saying, citing a report. 

She said that now that Keith has been punished, she can look to the future. 

During the case trial, Keith told the court he had been raping the girl ever since she started working as a babysitter at his house. She used to look after Keith’s children while his wife was at work. 

While she was busy working, Keith would rape the victim at his home. 

The 16-year-old victim said that Keith had told her to tell him when her periods were over. She often lied to escape the torture, but he would catch her.
