Dec 25, 2010
BHIMILI (Visakhapatnam): A 50-year-old man has been charged with raping his 16-year-old daughter repeatedly over the past four years.
The heinous act came to light on Friday when the man, Potnuri Raju, an RMP doctor practising at Padmanabham, 20 km from here, allegedly tried to sexually molest his 14-year-old younger daughter. Enraged over this, the elder daughter approached AIDWA, the women's wing of the CPM, and complained that her father had been raping her for four years and that he tried to do the same to her younger sister on Friday.
AIDWA members immediately took the matter to the police, who registered a case and arrested the father. Shockingly, Raju's wife reportedly knew of his actions. Charges under Sections 376 (rape) and 506 (threatening) of IPC were booked against the accused. The RMP doctor was residing with his wife and two daughters in Tagarapuvalasa, two km from here, since two years.
