On Sunday, 30-year-old Vikas Netke was detained by the police for allegedly beating his two and half month old daughter to death at his residence in Nalasopara.
The accused, however, has claimed that he had given the toddler her a cough syrup and was trying to wake her up by patting her back. But she didn’t wake up. Cops, investigating the matter, are awaiting the autopsy report before taking further action against Netke.
On the other hand, neighbours of the accused have revealed that Vikas was drunk and was badly thrashing his daughter. His wife was not at home at the time of the incident.
After they witnessed the man beating the kid, they immediately informed the local police and filed a complaint against Vikas.
Meanwhile, cops have registered a case of accidental death and the toddler’s body has been sent for autopsy to JJ hospital.Back to latest news
