VADODARA: For five years, she silently suffered repeated sexual assaults by her own father. But on Tuesday, the girl, now 19, couldn't hide her trauma anymore after knowing that she was four months pregnant.
The police arrested her father, a truck driver, who had raped her several times since 2012 when she was just 14.
The family lives behind Air Force Station in Makarpura.
Early on Tuesday morning, she complained of severe stomach ache and asked her mother to take her to the hospital.
At SSG Hospital, doctors conducted a sonography and revealed to her that she was four months pregnant.
The girl broke down inconsolably and revealed to her mother that it was no one else but her own father who had raped her several times.
Police said that the girl was first raped in 2012 when her mother was admitted in SSG Hospital for thyroid treatment and there was nobody at home.
After raping her, he even threatened his daughter not to reveal anything to other family members.
In February 2013, he raped her again when she returned home with him after attending a cousin's wedding. As she continued to suffer silently, her father continued to sexually assault.
On April 19, he again raped her when she was alone at home. The predator refused to relent though she repeatedly pleaded with him to let her go as she had been missing her menstrual cycles since four months.
After she revealed the trauma, her mother then took her to Makarpura police station and made her register a complaint against her father.
A police official said that they have arrested the accused and have got the girl's medical check-up done at the hospital.
