MANGALURU:  A 48-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly raping his minor daughter.

Sources in Mangaluru Rural police station said the man has been sexually assaulting his 15-year-old daughter for the past six months. He also threatened the victim of dire consequences if she reveals this to anyone.

The incident came to light when a school teacher insisted on knowing the reason for her depression.

Later, Child Welfare Committee (CWC) was informed and a case was registered against the man at Mangaluru Rural Police station under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Immediately the police detained the man and produced him before the court. 

CWC chairman said, “After the medical test, the victim refused to go home along with her mother. So, she was sent to her uncle’s house as per her wish. The victim’s three sisters, however, claim that their father is innocent and accused the girl of lying. The truth will be revealed only after the medical report,” he said.
