Mumbai: Two months after a 34-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping his two stepdaughters, police are awaiting DNA reports from the forensic science lab. The two girls--aged 15 and 17--were pregnant and had to undergo abortions. The case came to light in March when the mother, along with the daughters, planned a outing. “The accused insisted that she leave behind one daughter. When the mother refused, he slit his wrist. He was rushed to hospital and given first aid,“ said Dilip Ugale, senior inspector at Kalachowkie police station.

When the police was called, the mother gave her statement, but the cops found the two girls were scared.“We spoke to them and the girl revealed that they were being raped by their stepfather. Their mother would go for work early in the morning and return by evening.The accused would rape the younger daughter in the morning and the older one in the afternoon. Both were pregnant,“ said the officer.
