A man was booked today for allegedly raping his 21-year-old daughter for the last three years, police said here.
Soon after the report was filed yesterday, the accused, Balram Sahu (42), fled the town, Keolari police station in-charge Amit Vilas Dani said.
Sahu, an insurance agent, had been allegedly raping his daughter from the past three years by threatening her to kill her brother and mother, the police officer said.
The case was registered against Sahu under Section 376 and Section 506 of the Indian Penal Code, he said.
After suffering a lot, the victim, a homoeopathy student, mustered courage to narrate her ordeal to her mother's sister after which they reported the matter to the police, he added.
