Man held for raping daughter for two years

A 45-year-old man from a village in Salcete was arrested by Margao police on Monday on charges of raping his 24-year-old daughter for the last two years. The paternal uncle of the victim was also arrested on charges of molesting the girl.

Police sources said that the facts came to light last Wednesday after the victim's sister, who is married, noticed something suspicious about the victim's behavior when she had come to her parents' home and questioned her. The victim, sources said, confided in her sister that she was sexually abused by her father and molested by her uncle since 2010. The victim's sister then lodged a complaint with Margao police on Sunday against her father and uncle, following which the police on Monday booked an offence against the father for raping his daughter and the uncle for sexually molesting his niece.
