Father Arrested For Allegedly Sexually Assaulting Teenage Daughter in Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai, 12th May 2024: A 45-year-old man was arrested by the Rabale police for allegedly sexually assaulting his teenage daughter four years ago. The crime was brought to light when the victim’s uncle, who had been caring for her, was taking her back home and she confided in him about the abuse she had suffered at the hands of her father when she was 10 years old.

The accused, who works as a conservancy worker and lives with his parents, the victim, and her brother in Digha, had been abandoned by his wife many years ago. The teenager had been staying with her uncle in Govandi for a few weeks before revealing the traumatic experience to him on May 7.

Upon hearing the girl’s account, the uncle immediately took her to the Shivaji Nagar police station to file a complaint, which was then transferred to the Rabale police. The accused was arrested on Saturday after admitting to the crime, acknowledging that he had assaulted his daughter on two occasions when she was 10 years old.

The grandmother had also been informed about the incident by the minor, and in response, she confronted and punished the accused before relocating the girl to her uncle’s residence for safety.
