A 40-year-old man has been booked for allegedly raping his 17-year-old daughter at their residence in Chhattisgarh's Korba district since the last three years, police said on Saturday.
The accused, booked on alleged charges of rape and criminal intimidation, and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act on Friday, is yet to be arrested, said Kartala Station House Officer (SHO) Sunil Kurre.
