A father has been detained in Vadodara for allegedly raping his teenage daughter over 9 months. The matter came to light after the mother noticed that her daughter had gone unusually quiet for some time.
As per the case details, Farooqsha Deewan, a resident of Naseera village in Savli taluka earned his living by driving an autorickshaw.
He lived with his wife, son, and 14-year-old daughter. Some nine months ago, Deewan began to sexually exploit his daughter. He would force her when her mother would be away from home. This continued for some time and the child began to withdraw.
How the teen’s exploitation came to light
One day the mother decided to question her daughter as she felt that she had become unusually quiet and afraid. After some cajoling, the daughter told her mother about the exploitation by her father and how it had been going on for some time.
The angry mother confronted the father but Deewan instead of being apologetic threatened his wife. He told her that if she told anyone about the incident, he would kill her and her children. Afraid for the safety of her children, the mother approached the local police station against her husband. Bhadarva police swung into action and immediately detained the father. Further investigations are on in the case.
