    The victim told the police that she could not muster courage earlier to inform anyone about the offence as the accused had threatened her with dire consequences.

    Later, when the accused also raped his younger daughter, aged 14, the two sisters informed their mother about it, Verma said. While the younger daughter lodged a complaint in this connection on June 29, the elder one approached police the next day, Verma said.

    The accused was immediately arrested and booked under IPC Section 376-AB and provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Two separate cases were lodged against him on complaints filed by his two daughters.

    The hearing in the case lodged by the younger daughter is scheduled for next month, Verma added.
