The girl then said her father was responsible.
Police on Sunday, October 11, 2020, said that they arrested an Indian father for allegedly raping his 10-year-old daughter.
The shocking incident took place at the unnamed man’s home in the Vakola area of Mumbai.
It was reported that the 40-year-old and his wife had been living separately since 2016.
While the man lived with his daughter in Mumbai, his estranged wife was living in Surat, Gujarat.
The matter came to light on Friday, October 9, 2020, when the police got a call from Sion Hospital. They said that a minor girl had been taken to the hospital by her mother after being raped.
Police reached the hospital and questioned the young girl who said that she was sexually assaulted by her father.
The girl’s mother told officers that her daughter had visited her in Surat a few days ago.
Whilst in Surat, the girl had told her mother that she was experiencing pain in her private parts. Her concerned mother took to the doctors, however, they could not conclude the reason for her pain.
The mother then took her daughter back to Mumbai and they went to Sion Hospital where doctors confirmed she had been raped.
The girl then said her father was responsible. Her mother subsequently filed a case against her husband.
Police registered a case and were quickly able to arrest the Indian father.
A case was registered against the man under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 376 (rape), and provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
Following his arrest, the accused was presented before a Mumbai court. The court remanded the man in custody until October 15, 2020.
In an equally horrific case, a father raped and killed his 16-year-old daughter.
It was reported that the victim was raped by her father and fell pregnant as a result.
When the father knew, he and his wife strangled their daughter to death. They then conducted a funeral in an attempt to get rid of the body.
However, the sister and brother-in-law knew what had happened and informed the Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (RSCPCR).
The RSCPCR presented the case to the police and they launched a case.
They arrested the couple, however, an investigation continued to find out if the victim was pregnant.
Superintendent of Police Amandeep Kapoor said that officers collected samples from the crematorium and sent it to forensics for examination.
