Man arrested for raping minor daughter for three years in Kollam
Kollam: In yet another shameful incident, Kadakkal police arrested a man for raping his minor daughter for the last three years here in the district on Saturday.
According to sources, the accused is a resident of Kadakkal and an alcoholic. He had been raping his 13-year-old daughter, who is a Class 6 student now, for the last three years. He would come home in an inebriated condition and would rape the minor girl. This has been going on since the girl was in Class 3. Fearing her father, she never told anyone about the incident.
A few days ago, when his wife was not at home, the man raped his daughter yet again. Unable to tolerate the abuse, the minor girl later informed her mother about the whole incident. The woman took the girl to Kadakkal police station and filed a complaint.
The police registered a case and questioned the man, who confessed to the crime. Following this, the police registered Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) charges and arrested him.
