BHOPAL: A man allegedly raped his underage daughter for over a year. This is the second incident reported this year when a biological father was arrested by Bhopal police for the rape of his daughter. The girl has now filed a complaint with the Jahangirabad police because she can no longer endure the ordeal.

The victim said the accused beat her and threatened to tell her mother nothing about the incidents. The girl is a resident of Govindpura. Previously, his family stayed in Jahangirabad.

SI Riddhi Sharma said the girl’s mother worked as a domestic worker and her father, the accused, was a laborer. She said that almost a year ago the accused raped her while she was alone and threatened her not to reveal the incident to anyone. At the time, his two younger siblings were playing outdoors.

However, he continued to rape the victim even after every time his mother left for work. On February 28, while her mother was away for work, the accused again raped the 14-year-old victim. She tried to run away, but the accused beat her and imposed himself on her. The girl told her mother about it on Tuesday. When his mother questioned the accused about it, he beat them both. He was drunk.

The girl’s mother took her to Jahangirabad police station, where a case was registered under the rape articles and the POCSO law. The girl was sent for a medical examination and the police are now looking for the accused.
