Mumbai Crime: Man rapes minor daughter for a year, arrested

Mumbai, Mar 19 (IANS): The police on Saturday arrested a 38 years old man for allegedly raping his daughter.

The crime came to light when the girl, who is 14 years old, told her school-teacher that her father had been sexually abusing her for about a year.

The teacher contacted members of 'Dilasa', an NGO, and the district Child Welfare Committee who approached the police. The accused lives with his wife and five children in Gaondevi Dongar area of suburban Andheri. The victim is his eldest daughter, police said.

Her mother was aware of what was happening but kept mum because the accused was the sole bread-winner of the family, police said.

Police registered a case under section 376 of IPC (rape) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. A local court remanded the accused in police custody till March 23, said senior inspector Dhanaji Nalawade of D N Nagar police station.

    What a ghastly act.Ashaming ,and horrible same time.Not because father raped for a year his daughter but mother knew it and didnt do anything against it.Own daughter let it go.because he was sole bread winner?I would put him out,or call policeimmediately seeing it,or would get out withchildren go elsewhere and live with children with some help of some unions or social help.Out of Anger would even may be thrash him.My God she spoiled her childhood.where she and father should have protected children,instead.I feel so sorry for the child.what is she doing without husband now ,where before she was afraid?Arrest both of them ,and punish them.Better not to have such parents .
