Following the fight, the woman went to her relative's home with younger daughter, a one-year-old. She left the three-year-old old with her father, he said.
The man raped his daughter when he realised that he was left alone with her, Mr Singh said, adding that when the wife returned home the next morning, she found her daughter "unconscious and the bed sheet stained with blood".
The man had left the house by then. Police registered a case based on the woman's complaint, he said.
