Two sisters were allegedly sexually exploited by their father and uncle in Chhattisgarh’s Durg district, police said on Sunday.

The police on Saturday arrested the two accused from Bhilai city, Chhavani chief superintendent of police Prabhat Kumar said.

The uncle then allegedly raped the girl on one occasion and continued to sexually exploit her frequently, the official said.

When the girl told her father about the abuse, the latter scolded her and started molesting her as well, he said.
