In a shocking incident, a man allegedly killed his six-year-old daughter by stuffing an onion into her mouth in Aurangabad last week. The father lost his cool after the girl failed to recite numbers after 12.
The incident took place on July 9 at Balapur village and the accused, Raju Kute, was arrested last night for killing his daughter Bharti, an official from Chikalthana police station told PTI over phone.
“Bharti recited numerals from 1 to 12, but stumbled thereafter, which enraged Raju. He was so livid that he took an onion and stuffed it down her throat, following which she choked to death,” police said.
After the gruesome deed, Raju buried his daughter’s body near a crematorium, police said, adding that the victim’s mother had witnessed the crime.
On the basis of her complaint, Raju was arrested and a case has been registered against him under IPC sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender).
Further investigation in the case is underway.
