As per the reports, the victim accused her mother of giving her abortion medicines and contraceptives to her husband.

The woman, who lived with her family in Chinhat at the outskirts of Lucknow, approached the police when she saw her father sexually abusing her younger sister. Further, in her statement, she stated that with the course of time her father became aggressive and began giving her sexually explicit letter. Her two brothers aged 18 and 8 years knew about this ordeal their sisters were facing but never opposed or raised their voice.

As per TimesNow reports, victim’s father started sexually abusing her when she was just 6- year-old and by now she accepted her fate given by her father but could not withstand when her father started abusing her younger sister also.
