As the protests in Delhi against the rape of a 23-year-old in a private bus continued to grow, the police in Bhilwara finally woke up to arrest a man from Gujarat on charges of raping his adopted daughter for more than three years.

The girl, now 17, accused her adoptive father Vidhadhar Saini, 40, of raping her often after she turned 14.

The girl said in her complaint to the police that she escaped from his clutches two months ago and arrived in Jaipur where a woman sent her to a girls' shelter home.

Saini was arrested in Okha Port in Jamnagar district of Gujarat, said additional commissioner of police Biju George Joseph.
