The minor alleged that her father had been molesting her and her elder sister for a long time, but they did not file a complaint because of social pressure.

She, however, decided to reach out to the police when her father molested her on May 22 and lodged a first information report.

The childrens’ mother had left home around 10 years ago and they lived with their father. The minor, in her complaint, said he was alcoholic and would often molest her and her sister.

Detailing the May 22 incident, she said her father molested her after entering her room in an inebriated state when she was sleeping. She raised an alarm following which neighbours rushed to the spot and reported the same to the girls’ relatives. Later, the minor decided to file a police complaint.

Sharing further information, assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Kulvir Singh, who is investigating the case, said the accused has been booked under section 354-A (sexual harassment) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
