PATNA: A day after police jailed a man for allegedly violating his two teenage daughters, one of the survivors recorded her statement against her father before a judicial magistrate in Patna.

He was remanded in judicial custody, City SP (east) Vishal Sharma told media.

Sharma worked in a printing press. His family includes his wife, two daughters and a son.

The complainant, a Class X student, told police she and her elder sister, who is studying in Class XII, were repeatedly raped by their father.
