Rajkot: A fifty-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping his teenage daughter in Sardhar town of the district, police said on Friday.

Keshu Timbadiya has been arrested for raping his 16-year-old daughter, police said.

The offence came to light when the girl became pregnant and was admitted to Rajkot civil hospital on January 25, where she gave birth to a baby-girl, police said.
