Hyderabad: A 62-year-old man has been booked for repeatedly raping his two minor daughters at his residence here for the past one year, police said.
The RGIA Police took the accused to custody on Friday after the incident came to light when their house owner asked the elder daughter out on suspicion and made her book a case against her father. The accused, a native of Nepal, was an apartment watchman by profession.
The mother knew about these activities but was threatened into silence by the man. “He threatened to kill us if I ever speak out about him and my daughters to anyone,” said the mother.
The man, identified as Raj Bahadur, was residing at Ahmednagar in Shamshabad with his family, consisting of his wife and two daughters, aged 15 and 17, said the police inspector of RGIA, M. Mahesh.
Bahadur has been sexually assaulting and raping his two daughters since the past one year threatening them with dire consequences, said the official.
He has been booked under section 376 (rape) of IPC and under relevant sections of PoCSO Act,” concluded the police official.
He first migrated to Bihar several years ago from Nepal with his family to earn a living and then moved to Hyderabad from there, where he got a job as a watchman.
