The girl's father had married thrice. His first wife had severed relations with him long ago. The second wife was the mother of the girl. The third wife had left him. Taking her children, she had gone to stay with her parents.
"On Saturday night, the girl finally talked to a few of her neighbours, who encouraged her to approach the police. She filed a complaint at the Mohammadi kotwali, following which the man was arrested," Singh said.
