A man was arrested on Monday for allegedly raping his minor daughter over three years and pushing her into prostitution with the help of his friend from Curchorem in Goa, police said.

The accused, who is in his 40's, repeatedly sexually assaulted his 14-year-old daughter since 2009 at his house, police added.

The victim, who lodged a complaint against the accused, said her father even "sold her off" to a 30-year-old man who too abused her in lieu of buying alcohol for her father.

Police stated that the accused father has been booked on the charges of sexual abuse and pushing his daughter into prostitution, besides under the 'Goa Children's Act', along with his accomplice who has also been nabbed.
