The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Women Safety), Vrinda Shukla, while talking to the Observer Dawn on Thursday said, “Entire incident came into notice on July 24, only after the perpetrator’s wife, who is a housewife, filed a complaint at the Phase 2 police station of Noida”. She added, “The woman alleged in her complaint that her husband would rape their daughter after consuming alcohol but the fear of public shame and disrepute to the family kept her from approaching the police initially”.

When asked, a senior police officer said, “The culprit has been booked under section 378 of the IPC (rape) as well as the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012”. He added that further proceedings were on.
