KENDRAPADA: A man has been arrested for raping his minor daughter since last eight years in Odisha’s Kendrapada district, said police on Wednesday.
The 46-years old father, who is working as a security guard at Paradip-based Oil Refinery, was arrested following a complaint by his daughter at Marshghai police station under Kendrapara district, said police.
According to the victim, she was raped over 50 times in last 8 years by her father and even she was forced to intake contraceptive pills more than six times to terminate her pregnancy.
The 16 years old girl, who is studying in Plus Two Science (Second year) at a Jagatsinghpur-based college, alleged that her father Dhiren Behera abused her sexually when she was only 8 years old.
At that time, she failed to understand about the act of her father.But when she became 12 -years -old, her father allegedly started raping her forcibly.
“When I came to know about the act of my father, I made an attempt to restrict such heinous and clandestine act of my father, but my father used to torture me physically. Even, my father threatened to kill my younger brothers and me if I oppose him to keep physical relation with him,” said the girl.
“So fearing my father, I remained mum and faced the heinous act and compromised myself with the demand of my father, despite my wish,” narrated the girl.
She said that while she had in past brought the matter to the knowledge of her mother about the heinous act, her mother had also beaten him a couple of times for his heinous act.
“But my father failed to change himself in his attitude. Since last two years or so, my father used to rape me when my mother remained absent and threatened not to disclose the matter to anybody, else he will kill me,” said the girl during the inquiry to SDPO of Kendrapara, Purna Chandra Pradhan.
Her father used to ask her to talk with him with slang over the phone, if she did not talk slang language with him, then for sure on that night she has to face the assault of her father, alleged the minor victim girl on her FIR.
