A labourer from Kolar in Karnataka, Chandra, has been arrested by the local police for allegedly raping his minor stepdaughter.
As per the police, Chandra has divorced his wife and has been living with another woman ever since. He allegedly raped the woman's 14-year-old daughter when she was out for work.
This came to the woman's notice only after her daughter became pregnant a few months ago. However, instead of going to the police, the woman stopped the daughter from going to school and made her sit at home instead.
The rape came to light only after the government school authorities realised that the girl had not been attending school since a while and they went to her house to inquire.
The matter was then reported and Chandra was arrested by the police.
