A 42-year-old Army jawan from Meerut was arrested for allegedly raping his own daughter for months. According to the reports, the accused was posted in Jammu and Kashmir and he recently returned home to celebrate Dussehra and Diwali with his family.

His elder daughter took the decision of filing a case against him when he tried to rape his younger daughter. The victim in her FIR reportedly said, “I would have tolerated all this had my father not tried to rape my younger sister a few days ago. I have decided to teach my father a lesson.”

She also said that her mother was a mute spectator to the crime and did not intervene in the matter. According to the police, the mother claimed that she was beaten by her husband whenever she raised a voice against him.

“We have arrested the accused and have been sent booked under rape charge and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. We are investigating the role of the mother because the victim has levelled serious allegations against her also,” reportedly said in-charge of the local police station.

Further, the police informed that the accused used to send obscene messages to her daughter for the last two years.

SP (rural) Avinash Pandey said that the victim had shared a video with the police in which the accused was seen abusing and beating her up. The victim also left her home two months ago because of sexual harassment.
