Despite several attempts to stop crime against women, several cases against women grabbed the headlines every day. In a shameful incident has come to light from Punjab where a 45-year-old father raped his daughter.

The accused has been booked by the Police. The whole ghastly incident came to light when the minor gave birth to a baby girl at the Government Rajindra Hospital in Patiala on Saturday.

However, the minor girl’s pregnancy news came to know a few months back, Hindustan Times reports said.

"We have now filed a case of sexual assault against the father of the victim. The girl said no one spotted any change in her physical appearance as she has a healthy built," said Gurmeet Singh, Station House Officer (SHO), Ghanaur.

The victim’s mother is mentally unstable due to which she couldn’t help her daughter from his husband's assault.

The girl was admitted to the hospital after having stomach pain. Then, the doctor told the family that the victim was 7-month pregnant.

After this news, doctors contacted the police and then the victim was shifted to Government Rajindra Hospital for treatment. On Saturday, the girl delivered a baby girl.

The shocking revelation about the case was that the father committed a crime by threatening her about dire consequences if she revealed the matter to anyone.

According to the statement given by the victim to the police, she was raped by her father multiple times in the past.

According to the reports, the girl and her family are Nepal nationals but are currently living in Ghanaur area of Patiala. Initially, the victim's family was not willing to file a complaint but later agreed to record the girl's statement.

Meanwhile, the father has been arrested under sections 376 (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

Also, no arrest has been made yet because the accused is still on the run.
