Man arrested for raping daughters, granddaughter
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 today 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 yesterday, the SHO said, adding "the daughters were stunned to see that their father has molested the granddaughter a few days ago".
The accused, Dhakar, is a retired supervisor from the Krishi Upaj Mandi, he said.
The girls have alleged that their father exploited them physically for many years, and used to threaten them of dire consequences if they told anyone about the matter.

A probe into the matter is on, he said.
