Teenage girl `raped by her father until she became pregnant`
London: In a shocking case, a teenage girl
in Britain was raped by her father everyday for nearly a month
until she became pregnant to provide a child for him and his
infertile partner, a media report said.
The Cambridge Crown Court was informed that the girl
was just 16 years old when her father sexually abused her for
a month for getting a child for his new partner, who became
infertile following a hysterectomy, the `Daily Mail` reported.
The girl, who gave birth to a baby boy in December
2008 and passed him off as the son of her ex-boyfriend, though
she had never slept with him, finally told the police in March
this year when she discovered her father making advances to a
14-year-old girl in the family home, the report said.
In a shocking police interview shown to the jury, the
girl said: "He started pestering me. I said I did not want to
have sex with him, but he locked the bedroom door.
"I knew it was illegal to have sex with your father.
I said it`s illegal and I do not want to get pregnant or get
into trouble. That`s how I got pregnant. He told me not to
The court heard that the teenager`s father threatened
to kill himself if she told anyone about the abuse. "He said
he would take 1,000 tablets," she told the hearing.
The girl and her father, both hailing from a village
in Cambridgeshire, have not been named "for legal reasons".
The father denies three counts of rape, one of sexual
activity with a child and one of sexual assault of a child, as
well as perverting the course of justice.
It may be recalled that a similar case took place in
Austria where Josef Fritzl kept his daughter Elisabeth locked
in a cellar for nearly 24 years and raped her numerous times.
The incestuous relationship forced upon her by Fritzl resulted
in the birth of seven children and one miscarriage.
