A 38-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly raping his minor daughter.

The Koparkhairane police said Yogeshwar Jha had been raping his 16-year-old daughter for the last two months.

Jha, a resident of Koparkharaine’s Bonkode village, hails from Bihar and works as a driver.

“On Monday, the girl complained of stomach ache and went to a doctor who told her that she was pregnant,” said Arun Walture, senior police inspector. The doctor informed the police and the girl registered a complaint against her father.

“We have arrested him and are investigating if his wife was aware of the crime,” added Walture.
