The capital (Delhi) in the past three days has reported three separate incidents of incestuous rape, two by fathers themselves.
A seven-year-old girl was raped by her father at Bhalswa Dairy in northwest Delhi. The rape was reported on Thursday night after the girl complained of stomach pain to her mother. The woman found injuries in the girl's private parts and consulted a doctor. "The doctor said the girl was repeatedly raped. The minor confirmed it after which her mother approached police. A case was registered against the man, who worked as a laborer at nearby construction sites," foreign media reports. The 40-year-old man was arrested.
Meanwhile, another man was arrested for raping his 12-year-old daughter in a hotel at Paharganj in central Delhi. His family came from Bihar and booked a hotel room for a night on Thursday. "The man raped his daughter when the girl's mother was away. He lured her with gifts and asked her to remain quiet about the incident. However, she narrated her ordeal when her mother returned. The woman went to Paharganj police station and got a complaint registered. The man was arrested from the hotel after an hour," foreign media reports.
