After arresting the accused, police took the man to a hospital for medical check-up and doctors revealed that the man had AIDS.
Even the accused himself confirmed stating that he has been taking medicine for AIDS since last one year. He, however, told police that his wife and daughters did not have AIDS.
21-year-old Geeta (name changed) filed a police complaint against her father when he allegedly raped her younger sister who is 12-year-old.
Geeta informed police that she was first raped at the age of 11. She could not tell anyone about her ordeals as her mother was scared to reveal the truth to the society.
However, she was shattered when her younger sister informed that their father had made sexual advantages even towards the 12-year-old girl. Geeta took help from her neighbours and filed a police complaint.
Meanwhile, a police official was quoted as saying, "The accused told us that the disease was in the initial stage and he had found out about it a year ago. He had been taking medicines since then."
The accused, a carpenter by profession, has been booked under several Sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including 376 (Rape) and relevant Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
He was produced in court on Sept 2 and remanded in police custody till Sept 8.
