Welcome to Just answer !
I am sorry to learn about the situation that your granddaughter has been struggling with and I empathize with you and her.
Well from what you have narrated it seems like the child is not only being raised callously by her mother and her husband but at her tender age they are setting bad examples before her by making her to lie before her biological father and even in front of the authorities which by all means is not the right teaching that a parent is expected to impart to her child.
Secondly there seems to be a tremendous pressure upon the tender shoulders of the poor child to obey to her mother and her husband mainly because she fears / dreads the punishment that may follow if she falters in obeying the command. This is nothing less than abuse as parents are not supposed to torment their children like this.
Lastly there is a big conundrum regarding the role of the female adult with whom she has taken shower, which has been concealed from her own father. Why would a person lie and hide if nothing malicious is there .
So all in all the motive to point out these important agendas in this tricky scenario was to tell you that child's father has valid reasons to go to the DCSF and demand a further probe and questioning into the rearing of the child and seek definite answers to some very valid questions.
I believe the father should be most concerned about the safety and emotional well being of his child and if that calls for a stricter action by seeking DCSF again then be it that way.
I believe this situation needs to improve at any cost and with a stricter approach and action from father's side with obvious involvement of concerned authorities,so there is no point in thinking about compromising the child's emotional and physical well being and seeking an alternative path.
I hope this helps.
Wish you all the best and I pray that the child gets the right rearing and parenting that like any other innocent child she deserves as her right.
