Malkangiri: In a shameful incident, a minor girl was allegedly raped by her father in Kalimela area of Malkangiri district. Though the 13-year-old girl was sexually assaulted on Monday evening by her father (35), the matter came to light when her mother lodged a complaint at Kalimela police station today.
As per the complaint, when the girl was returning from her maternal uncle’s house with her father in a motorcycle at around 10 pm on Monday, the accused drove the vehicle on a wrong route.
