Ahmedabad: Two sisters from a village in eastern Gujarat have accused their father of raping them.

"My father used to rape me, he warned me not to tell anyone about it. I was too scared to tell anyone," CNN IBN quoted one of them as saying.

"My father did everything to me that one should with one's wife," said the younger of the victim, now 14.

Fighting social stigma, the brave teenager told her school principal about her father. The victims also got their mother's support.

"I hope girls see my story and get the courage to come out in the open if they suffer fates similar to mine. If my father can do such things to me, why should I not speak up? If a culprit is hanged, only then will others fear the consequences and not do this to girls like me," the report quoted her as saying.

Police have taken the accused in custody and the sisters and their mother hope their case will be taken up by a fast-track court.
