"he, along with his wife, strangulated her to death"
Police have arrested an Indian father after he raped and killed his 16-year-old daughter. The man’s wife was also arrested for her involvement in the murder.
The shocking incident happened in the city of Alwar, Rajasthan.
The matter came to light when the victim’s elder sister and brother-in-law snuck out of the house and secretly informed the Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (RSCPCR).
It was reported that the victim was raped by her father.
She allegedly then fell pregnant. Upon finding out, the accused killed her with the help of his wife.
Amandeep Kapoor, Superintendent of Police (SP), stated that the teenager was killed on May 10, 2020. He said that the Indian father found out that his daughter was pregnant.
The father and his wife then strangled the girl to death. The next day, they performed her funeral in a bid to get rid of the body.
However, the sister and brother-in-law knew what had happened and informed the RSCPCR.
SP Kapoor explained: “The accused allegedly came to know that the girl has got pregnant after which he, along with his wife, strangulated her to death on May 10 and the next day performed her funeral so that nobody doubted them.
“But the sister and the brother-in-law of the deceased informed the RSCPCR through a letter.”
The RSCPCR requested a factual report of the incident. After a report was produced, the police launched an investigation.
SP Kapoor added: “We are yet to find out whether she was pregnant or not?
“We have collected samples from the crematorium and have sent it to forensics for examination.”
“The couple has been arrested and has been sent to judicial custody.
While the couple remains in custody, the investigation continues.
In an equally horrifying case, a man was arrested for raping his three-year-old daughter.
He had got into an argument with his wife which escalated when he started hitting her.
This led to the woman leaving their home to protect herself and went to a relative’s house in the neighbourhood, taking her youngest daughter with her and leaving the three-year-old at home.
Upon realising that he was left alone with his daughter, he went to her room where she was sleeping and raped her.
After committing the horrific act, he fled the scene.
The woman came to know about her husband’s actions when she returned the next morning.
The young girl was taken to a local hospital where doctors confirmed she had been sexually assaulted after a medical checkup.
In the morning of Friday, November 30, 2018, the man was arrested at his place of work, where he is a driver.
When questioned by police regarding the allegations, the man denied raping his daughter. He later admitted to the crime.
