Out on bail in rape case, man assaults daughter
The incident happened near Dalu in the state’s West Garo Hills district, officials said. The 45-year-old man was arrested in 2016 after he allegedly impregnated his elder daughter, who was then 16 years old, they said. She later gave birth to a child and started living elsewhere, officials said. Soon after his release, the man allegedly started sexually assaulting his younger daughter. “These kind of ghastly acts cannot be accepted in a civilised society,” said MGR Kumar, superintendent of police of West Garo Hills.
