Bharatpur: A 64-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping his two daughters and a granddaughter for several years in Bayan town of Bharatpur district, police said on Wednesday.
"Babulal Dhakar's wife Shakuntala Dhakar was also arrested for supporting him in one of the most cruel acts of perversion," said Ashok Chouhan, SHO of Bayana Police Station.
A local court on Wednesday sent the couple to judicial custody till July 31, SHO said. Dhakar was arrested after two of his daughters, along with their husbands, lodged an FIR on Tuesday, the SHO said, adding "the daughters were stunned to see that their father has molested the granddaughter a few days ago".
