"There is no crime more heinous and ghastly than the present one and no other crime can be more humiliating and disgraceful for a man than the act of seducing his own daughter," the court said.
"The girl child is to be worshipped and not raped. Sexual assault upon a girl child is the most sinful, barbaric and savage atrocity and hence not only deplorable but severely punishable. One fails to imagine how a person would think of ravishing a minor innocent girl and that too when the girl is his own daughter," additional sessions judge Virender Bhat said, imposing a fine of Rs. 60,000 on the man.
