A 38-year-old man was arrested by Uttar Pradesh Police for allegedly raping his 16-year-old daughter.

The girl’s mother was away to attend a family function at a relative’s place on March 5, when the accused returned home in an inebriated condition and sexually assaulted his daughter.

The victim narrated her ordeal to her mother on her return and subsequently, she lodged a police complaint against her husband on Wednesday.
