In a shocking incident, a 22-year-old woman has alleged that she was repeatedly raped by her father for over a decade with her mother’s ‘active consent’ who even gave her contraceptives.
The girl, who lives in Chinhat on the outskirts of Lucknow, told the police that when her father started sexually abusing her younger sister, then she mustered courage and told her school principal. She approached an NGO and later the police.
The 44-year-old accused father has been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012, on charges of raping and sexually abusing his two daughters. He is absconding and the mother, 42, has been arrested for abetting the crime.
The two survivors have recorded their statements before a magistrate.
The girl said that she was being raped since the tender age of six. “My mother knew about it all along and used to give me contraceptives and medicines to abort pregnancies,” the victim told the NGO Asha Jyoti Kendra.
She further said that recently, their father became more aggressive and even started writing them sexually explicit letters.
The complainant said that their two brothers (aged 18 and 8 years), the tenant in their house and some of their relatives knew about the actions of her father but no one opposed it, the police said.
