Father rapes 10-yr-old daughter in Jahagirpuri
In yet another rape incident, a ten-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her 36-year-old father in northwest Delhi's Jahangirpuri area.
The accused had allegedly committed the act when they were alone inside their rented accommodation around a week ago.
The police have said that a case was registered and a manhunt is on for the accused.
The police have claimed that the case came to light when the victim's mother had reported the matter to the police.
"The girl was visibly upset and crying. She had stopped eating and would try to lock herself up in her room.
"Last week when the girl was having dinner, she told her mother about the incident," said a senior police official privy to the investigation.
The woman had also told the police that she was not present at the house during the time of the incident and had gone to buy vegetables in a nearby market.
The mother then approached the police, however, the husband who got wind of the development fled the house and is still at large.
"The accused is still at large and had fled the house before we could apprehend him.
"We have formed several teams who are scouring the area and will apprehend him at the earliest," the official added.
