An 18-year-old girl from Morena district of Madhya Pradesh has accused her father of raping her twice during the lockdown. The girl has also accused her mother to be an accomplice in the alleged crime.
According to the complainant, she was raped twice by her father within a fortnight during Lockdown 1. The girl’s parents on the other hand, however, denied all allegations and said that the girl was framing them. They alleged that the girl was accusing them falsely as they had raised an objection to her relationship with a youth.
According to TOI report, the girl was working in her kitchen on March 26, when the first assault took place. At around 2pm, the father allegedly grabbed her and took her to a room. The man is accused to have tied his daughter to a bed while her mother stuffed a cloth into her mouth.
The girl was then reportedly raped by her father and her mother watched in silence. According to the girl, the man told her that it would make things less painful after marriage. After the incident, the girl’s parents locked her inside a room to prevent her from informing the cops.
