Maharaj said the victim’s mother had initially lodged a complaint against the senior deputy collector-rank officer at the Sachivalay police station in west-central Patna. “Subsequently, she lodged an FIR at the women’s police station at Gandhi Maidan, alleging her husband had been raping her daughter for last few days despite her protests”, the SSP stated.

He used to keep both the victim and her mother in a constant state of fear to prevent them from going to the police”, the SSP said.
In her FIR, the victim’s mother said she found her husband in a compromising position with her daughter while she was going to wake up her seven year old son for going to school on Friday morning. The family resides in a rented house in SK Puri locality of west-central Patna. “When I protested, my husband beat me up mercilessly”, she said, adding she was totally ignorant of the sexual exploitation of her daughter till she found them together on Friday. In the FIR, the victim’s mother also claimed her husband had turned a “sex maniac” in recent years and used to regularly bring call girls into their home. She said she kept mum over her husband’s misdeeds out of fear. “But when I saw my husband tormenting my daughter, I could not take it anymore,” she said. The police have recovered objectionable items and porn videos from a computer in the Deputy Collector’s house after a search was carried out on Saturday. Women police station Incharge Mridula Kumari told media that the victim and her mother were both in a state of shock and also appeared to be quite scared.
