NOIDA: A 45-year old guy has been detained for allegedly raping his little daughter at Uttar Pradesh‘s Noida on Wednesday, authorities said. The guy, a labourer hailing from Bihar, would frequently get drunk and drive himself upon his 13-year old girl, a senior police officer said.
A complaint was registered with his wife in the Stage two police station on July 24, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Women Safety) Vrinda Shukla stated.
“The girl alleged in her complaint that her husband could rape his daughter after swallowing alcohol but the dread of shame and disrepute into the household kept her from coming the authorities originally,” Shukla said.
The DCP said the accused was detained on Wednesday after registration of an FIR and first probe.
He’s been reserved under Indian Penal Code section 376 (rape) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, the authorities said, including additional proceedings were penalized.
