New Delhi: In an incident, a 40-year-old man was arrested for sexually assaulting his 10-year-old daughter in their house in southeast Delhi’s Govindpuri. The girl informed her classmate about the incident, who went to the school teach-er, who then alerted the cops.
Police said that relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act have been invoked for further investigation. The girl was taken to AIIMS Trauma Center for medical examination on Tues-day.
