Signal in frequency domain with OpenCV dft

I am experimenting with cv::dft: a 1HZ sinus signal is generated, and displayed in the frequency domain. But for some reason it hasn't got the maximum component at 1Hz. My code is the following:

const int FRAME_RATE = 20;             //!< sampling rate in [Hz]
const int WINDOW_SIZE = 256;

double len = double(WINDOW_SIZE)/double(FRAME_RATE);   // signal length in seconds
double Fb = 1./len;                                     // frequency bin in Hz

// Constructing frequency vector
std::vector<double> f;
double freq_step = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < WINDOW_SIZE; ++i)
{
f.push_back(freq_step);
freq_step += Fb;
}

// Create time vector
std::vector<double> t;
double time_step = 0;
for(int i = 0; i<WINDOW_SIZE; ++i)
{
t.push_back(time_step);
time_step += 1./double(FRAME_RATE);
}

// Creating sin signal with 1Hz period
std::vector<double> y;
for(auto val : t)
{
y.push_back(sin(1*FRAME_RATE*val));
}

// Compute DFT
cv::Mat fd;
cv::dft(y, fd, cv::DFT_REAL_OUTPUT);
fd = cv::abs(fd);

If I plot the signal in time and frequency domain: plot(t, y); plot(f, fd) the result is the following: The time signal is good, but the frequency signal has maximum around 6HZ instead of 1HZ.

Where did I take the mistake?
