The suspect was handed over to the police for investigation and prosecution. During interrogation, Noel, an engineer, said he did the act out of foolishness and pleaded for forgiveness.
He said his wife got to know about it sometime ago but it was settled within the family. The young girl had earlier on revealed that the issue started some years ago, when her father told her about how special she meant to him and started caressing her breast.
She said it went on like that for some months before he began to have sex with her. At the moment, the girl, who was bleeding, has been taken to the hospital for further examination.
