In a shocking incident, a man was arrested in Bihar for allegedly raping his teenage daughter after the video of the abhorrent act went viral.
According to reports, the 50-year-old man, a resident of Rosera area in Samastipur district of the state, is a teacher by profession. His 18-year-old daughter accused him of raping and threatening her even as she managed to shoot a video of the sexual assault by her father using a hidden camera.
The matter came to light when the daughter shot a video of her father raping her and shared the clip on social media to seek justice.
Rosera subdivision DSP Sahiyar Akhtar said that as the video went viral, police registered an FIR based on the daughter’s complaint and arrested the accused father.
“Police have arrested the father who was seen assaulting [the victim] in the viral video. Legal action is being taken…and other accused are being ascertained based on the statement. Raids are also being conducted,” DSP Sahiyar Akhtar was quoted saying in a report by India Today.
Police questioned the father and initiated a probe to find if there were other accused in the case.
It is also alleged that the victim’s mother didn’t object to the assault and that her maternal uncle used to pressure her to remain quiet over the incident.
