What started out as a seemingly innocent dinner engagement for one man ended in a tortuous ordeal that ultimately led to his death.
According to Indian Express, a father was outraged to learn that his 14-year-old daughter had allegedly been raped by a 45-year-old married man. So he decided to take matters into his own hands. On Saturday, November 1, the father, whose name has not been released to conceal the identity of his daughter, was arrested after confessing to murder.
India TV News reports that the 36-year-old father’s statement included a timeline of the events that led to the alleged rapist’s murder. The father revealed that the alleged rape took place approximately two months ago while he was away from home.
The alleged rapist was reportedly a tenant in the same residential community as the girl’s family. He allegedly raped her after he discovered she was at home alone one day back in September. However, the specific date has not been determined. Although he made the girl promise she would not tell anyone, she told her father what happened the same day. But, shortly after the devastating ordeal, the girl became ill and later learned she was pregnant by the alleged rapist. Her father never reported the alleged rape to police, and he immediately decided he would seek justice on his own. So, for two months, he allegedly plotted to kill the man.
The father reportedly admitted to the gruesome crime in the detailed statement. He also chronicled the tortuous acts. An officer with the police department also released a brief statement recounting the details the girl’s father revealed.
“The father called the medicine supplier over to his house saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner. After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier’s genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself,” the officer revealed.
“Based on his statement, we sent a team to the spot and recovered the body. It has been sent for a post-mortem examination and his family has been informed. A case of murder has been registered and the 36-year-old man was arrested,” the officer said.
According to My Fox 8, the father will be charged with murder.
