A 15-year-old girl hailing froma village in Haryana's Sonepat district has alleged that she was repeatedly raped by her father in the past several months.


The accused, Rajpal, had been arrested after the girl recorded her statement before a judicial magistrate in Sonepat under Section 164 of the CrPC yesterday, Superintendent of Police Arun Nehra said today.

In her statement, the girl, a student of Class 8, alleged that her father, a habitual drunkard, had been sexually abusing her for past several months and had threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed it to anyone.

Rajpal, a resident of Raipur village, had in October last lodged a complaint against four persons alleging that they had gang-raped her daughter. He had also alleged that police were indifferent to his complaint and garnered support from a political outfit to put pressure on the force, the SP said.

All the four accused had been arrested and were under trial.

The SP has ordered a fresh inquiry by a DSP-rank officer into the case. He said Rajpal was facing eight cases of various nature. He had also allegedly attempted to push his daughter into flesh trade.
