AGRA: Two girls, aged 11 and 14 years, have charged their father and grandfather with rape and molestation in Farrukhabad district of UP.
An FIR was lodged in Farrukhabad police station on Friday.
According to police, the girls' mother died six years ago and they were initially living with their maternal grandmother, but due to financial problems, they returned to their father.
The girls alleged that the man had been raping the elder daughter for the last eight months, while the grandfather attempted to rape the younger one.
The maternal grandmother of the girls said, "The matter came to light after the younger girl complained about the assault to her elder sister who then finally decided to take the help of police."
The grandmother said, "Earlier too, the older girl complained about the father's act to the khap panchayat, after which the man apologised for the crime to avoid police action and assured he would take care of his daughters. However, some weeks later, he again started raping his elder daughter and locked her inside the house."
The 11-year-old girl said, "After our mother died, we lived with our maternal grandmother for four years and were happy. But she is poor and could not afford our expenses, so our father took us back. But he started raping my elder sister. Two days ago, our grandfather too groped me and molested me."
"I informed my sister about this and we fled to our maternal grandmother for help. I want both my father and grandfather to be jailed forever," the girl added.
Tribhuwan Singh, additional superintendent of police of Farrukhabad, said, "The accused father had been raping his own daughter for eight months. We have booked the father and grandfather under Section 376 (rape) of the IPC and provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. The grandfather has been arrested, while the father is on the run."
"I have asked a women's police station officer to properly investigate the matter and arrange for medical examination of the two girls, so that sufficient evidence is collected to jail the two men for a long time," Singh added.
