Pascal Mazurier had been accused of raping his three year old daughter by his wife in 2012.

Emerging from the court, Pascal - who was the deputy head of the chancery in the consulate of France here before his arrest -said he wanted to put the incident behind him and meet his children. "My daughter was sexually violated and I kept telling her we will get justice for the past five years", she said.

On a complaint by Jones, police filed an FIR (First Information Report) under Sections 376 and 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Mazurier on June 15, 2012 for alleged sexual assault and sodomy on the victim.
