Despite the enhanced and strict anti-rape ordinance passed by the government rapes in the aftermath of Delhi rang-rape, cases of sexual assaults are reported from various parts of the nation.
Recently a man in Mumbai was arrested for repeatedly raping his minor daughter for five years. The victim lived with her father in a rented house near Ganesh Murti Nagar in Cuffe Parade. She was sexually abused by him for five years after her mother moved to her home town following a separation from him.
