The accused, V Vijayendra Chary, is a government employee. He was arrested yesterday after his wife filed a complaint with the police, said Intezargunj police station circle inspector S Ravi Kumar.
Chary allegedly raped his daughter several times in the last two month, the police officer said, quoting from the complaint filed by the girl's mother.
"The victim is the eldest of four children of the couple. She discontinued her studies as she is a child with special needs," the officer said.
He said a rape case has been filed against Chary and investigation is on.
