Surat: In what could be a most deplorable incident for a civilised society, a man from Odisha was accused of murdering his minor daughter after raping and getting her pregnant here in Gujarat.
Surat police recently came up with the startling revelation after the DNA report confirmed that the man had committed the crime two months ago.
Tukuna Sahu from Odisha had allegedly raped her 14-year old daughter repeatedly. Six months later, he came to know that his daughter conceived. In a bid to cover up the shameful act, he allegedly strangulated her to death, police said.
The incident took place on June 29 following which police had arrested him after registering a suo motu case in this connection. Later, the DNA test was conducted to establish the truth.
“The report said that Tukuna is the biological father of the victim as well as the foetus growing in her womb. That means he raped his daughter, made her pregnant and murdered her,” Surat SP Mukesh Patel said.
