Police in Noida have arrested a 40-year-old man for allegedly raping his teenage daughter for three years and repeatedly assaulting her physically.
The man arrested is a native of Bihar and a daily wage worker. The last time she sexually assaulted his own daughter was two days ago. However, on this occasion, the girl managed to muster courage and approach the cops to share her woes.
Akhilesh Tripathi, SHO of Phase-III police station, was quoted as saying, “The family belongs to Bihar and they were staying in Chhijarsi village here for last some years. The girl’s mother was aware of that she was being sexually abused but both were threatened to remain silent.”
Tripathi added. “She has said in her complaint that her father is a drug addict and also did not allow her to attend school.”
The cops have filed an FIR in the case and the accused was arrested from his house.
He was booked under IPC Section 376 (rape) and under provisions of the Protection of Child against Sexual Offence (POCSO) Act and remanded in judicial custody, the police said.
