Dad rapes 16-year-old for a year, impregnates her

Mumbai: The Tilak Nagar police arrested a 40-year-old tailor on Sunday for raping his 16-year-old daughter for a year. He had threatened to kill the girl if she spoke about the rape and the abuse may have remained under wraps had the family’s landlord not noticed that the girl was pregnant and alerted a social worker.

Cops said that the girl, who is seven months pregnant, lived with her father and two brothers in the hutments of the Tilak Nagar area. Her mother had separated from the accused in the month of January. “The accused has eight children in all, from two wives.

He had got a divorce from one of the wives earlier and following the separation from the other wife, he took the custody of three children while the rest remained with her. Just before her mother left the home, the girl informed her about bleeding from her private parts, but the mother did not realise that she was raped,” said a police officer from Tilak Nagar police station.

“The accused had threatened to kill the girl if she spoke about the abuse. The landlord, who had sensed something wrong was going on, had been urging them to leave her house and shift somewhere else. When she noticed the girl was pregnant, however, the landlord contacted a social worker and the tailor’s abuse of his daughter came to light,” he added.
‘Dead husband’
According to police officials, the 16-year-old was so scared and traumatised that she even told the social worker that nothing was wrong. Only after some time did she open up and reveal that her father had got her pregnant.

“Investigations also revealed that the accused had taken her to Rajawadi hospital in May to check on her pregnancy, claiming that she was an adult and her husband had died. After the reports revealed she was pregnant, she was taken home and ordered to keep quiet. Since then, the victim stayed at home and did household chores,” added an officer.


On Sunday, the social worker alerted the police, following which a case was registered and the accused was nabbed. The 40-year-old has been booked under Sections 376 (2) (Taking advantage of official position and committing rape on a woman in his custody) and 506 (Criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code along with Sections 4, 6, 8 and 12 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. He was produced in court yesterday and has been remanded in police custody.
