A 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her father in Uttar Pradesh's Budhana town, police said.

The victim's mother said that the rapes had occurred when the minor was left at home alone with her father - while the mother was away at work - SHO Arun Kumar Tyagi said. The accused had threatened to kill the minor if she spoke about the rape, Tyagi said.

A case was registered against him under Section 376 (rape) of the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

The accused was arrested and he confessed to his crime during interrogation, the SHO said.

The victim has been sent for medical examination.
