    Mumbai, Sep 30: Convinced that if the women of the house stepped out they would be raped, 60-year-old Francis Gomes locked up his wife and his three daughters for seven years, reports Times News Network.

    The unemployed man, who beat up and starved his wife and daughters, managed to keep this a secret since 2002.

    Gomes used to lock up the house whenever he had to go out making the neighbours believe that there was no one at home.

    The women were locked up without food or fresh clothing. With the windows all boarded they rarely got any sunlight.

    Gomes physically abused the women too and in one such instance he broke his youngest daughter's neck injuring it permanently.

    Months ago, Gomes' second daughter managed to escape the torture with the help of an NGO called Sakhya, but the others refused to leave fearing that Gomes would hunt them down.

    However, on Tuesday, Sep 29 accompanied by police social workers belonging to the NGO Anand Rehabilitation Centre successfully freed the women from the clutches of 'psycho dad'.
