The medical examination of a Class 12 Gurgaon girl — who had claimed on Thursday that her father had been raping her over the past three years — has confirmed rape.
The 45-year-old father was remanded in judicial custody for 14 days. He is an exporter and lives in a condominium on Golf Course Road, while the 16-year-old girl is the student of an upmarket school.
On Thursday, the girl confided in her headmistress who took the matter up with the principal. Childline, an NGO, was roped in, and it called the police who assured her that she wouldn’t have to confront her father.
A source said that the girl had been confiding in a classmate for some time but didn’t have the courage to report the matter to anyone. She was reportedly worried about the repercussions of her revelation for herself and her family, afraid that the case would turn into a sensation like the Aarushi Talwar case.
Her mother, a homemaker, who came to pick her up from school on Thursday, broke down on learning of her revelation. The source said that the mother had known about the matter but did not know how to stop her husband.
