In a heart rendering incident, a lustful Bindura man who was reportedly having sexual intercourse with his own 15-year-old daughter allegedly assaulted her after catching red-handed with her alleged boyfriend.
The man who cannot be named to protect the minor was arrested after the girl, maddened by the beatdown, exposed the alleged sexual abuse.
Mashonaland Central police spokesperson, Inspector Milton Mundembe confirmed the case.
The two had an argument after the father saw his daughter walking with her boyfriend.
He is allegedly believed to have gotten angry due to his feelings towards the daughter and led him to beat her.
The victim was hurt by her father’s actions and reported the abuse she was facing under her father as he was in the habit of bedding her.
It was brought to light after the girl reported the case at the Centenary Police Station.
The man was arrested on January 3 and remanded in custody.
Inspector Mundembe also revealed that the girl was currently admitted at Mvurwi General Hospital, where she was waiting for the pregnancy to be terminated as granted by law.
‘Currently, efforts are underway to terminate the pregnancy after Bindura regional court granted a court order for termination.
I just received information that the pregnancy was successfully terminated,’ Inspector Mundembe later added.
