Police booked a father for marrying his 13-year-old daughter to a 30-year-old man, who along with three others allegedly raped the minor. The incident occurred in Ludhiana, Punjab.
The 13-year-old lives with her father. He allegedly married her off to a 30-year-old man on July 12 this year. However, the mother lives separately and works as a domestic helper at another place. Hence, she did not come to know of the marriage until Tuesday, September 15. In fact, she only came to know because she met her daughter.
