A father trying to seek justice on his own, is now facing murder charges.
According to The Indian Express, a father reportedly tortured and killed his 14-year-old daughter’s alleged rapist after inviting him over for dinner. He then went to the police station and surrendered to authorities. The incident took place in Northeast Delhi’s Khajuri Khas.
The 36-year-old father stated that the attack against his daughter happened two months prior while he was away from home. The attacker, a 45-year-old medicine supplier, came to the house and upon finding the minor girl alone at home allegedly raped her. He threatened the girl with more harm if she told anyone, but she immediately told her father. The father did not report the attack to authorities fearing ti would result in “a bad name for his daughter.”
Instead, he plotted his revenge. The details, as shown in the police report, are gruesome.
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.
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.
