The Hisar police have booked a man of Barwala area for alleged rape of his eight-year-old daughter.

The police said the incident occurred in Dhani Prem Nagar area of Barwala on April 11 when the girl's mother was away to fields for work and her father was alone with her at home.

The accused, 32, is a farm labourer and since the incident was reported to the police by the girl's mother on Saturday, he is absconding.

The accused had also threatened his wife of dire consequences if she reported the matter to the police, a police official said.

He said the girl's medical examination report was awaited and further investigations were being carried out.

The police booked the accused under the Protection of Children from sexual offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.
