New Delhi: In a shocking incident, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her own father in west Delhi, police said on Saturday. The girl filed a complaint four days ago that she was raped by her father, Ramashre, around three months ago when she was alone at home.

"She was sexually assaulted by the accused several times. Four days ago she reported the incident to one of her neighbours, who approached the Crime Against Women (CAW) cell along with the victim, and a case was registered," said a police official.

The girl could not muster courage to tell anyone as the accused had threatened her of dire consequences.

The victim was taken to a government hospital for medical examination where doctors confirmed rape, police said. A hunt is on to nab the accused who is absconding. The victim, who is the eldest of five siblings, resides at west Delhi's Shahbad Dairy along with her parents.
