Udaipur : In a horrifying tale that came to light before the police, a father had been in habit of raping his two minor daughters for an year now almost every night at their home in Deewan Shah colony under Surajpole police station of the city. The accused’s wife who had left the home four months ago, came to know of the disgusting act of her husband when she returned home recently and the terrified children narrated the plight to their mother. The man has been detained, sources said.
” We received the complaint through the woman’s cell where the victim’s mother had gone with her daughters aged 11 and 6 respectively. We held a counselling session with them in a friendly atmosphere to make them comfortable and speak out what they had been bearing for a long time. What the kids said is an horrifying account that put humanity to shame.It is hard to believe that any father could commit such a ghastly act with his own daughters” Harish Paliwal, member of the Child Welfare Committee said. The accused was an alcoholic and didnot give a penny to his wife for running the household. The woman did petty jobs to look after her four kids. Tired of his constant abuse and battering, she left home four months ago. The elder daughter said that even when their mother lived with them, her father would take her away while she would be sleeping with her grandparents and siblings in another room. He would take her to a separate room, strip and rape her very often. The man threatened her not to tell this to anyone in the house and so the child endured everything. After their mother left the home, the father started raping even the younger daughter who is just 6 year old, in the same manner. Both the girls were so terror struck of being beaten and abused that they didnt muster up courage to tell this to their grandparents whom they felt would not believe them.
On thursday, police took the kids to the home to verify the spots were their father committed the unpardonable act. CWC members, a UNICEF representative and a member of the women’s cell accompanied them. ” The victims statements have been recorded and we have ordered the concerning police station to register a case under the POCSO Act and detain the accused father” Preeti Jain, the chairperson of CWC said.
