Mumbai: A 45-year-old man from Uttar Pradesh who allegedly raped and murdered his teenage daughter for honour reportedly asked his friend to brutalise his daughter ‘twice’ in order to ‘teach her a lesson’. The victim was gang raped by her father and his friend for eloping from her hometown in Uttar Pradesh with male friend.
According to a TOI report: After the girl's body was recovered from the jungles of Dachkulpada in Kashimira, where she was murdered on October 31, an autopsy was conducted. The report confirms that the girl (17) was sexually assaulted before being strangled but it refutes the father's claim to the police that she was pregnant.
The victim was the eldest among three siblings. Four months ago, she eloped with her 19-year-old neighbour from Komalpur in Ghazipur. After a wedding in a temple, the couple had been living at Uttan in Bhayander (W). When the girl secretly started calling up her mother, the father got the wind of it and managed to get her Bhayander address. Two weeks ago, he came to the city and traced her to Uttan. He, along with a friend, who lived at Dachkulpada Road in Kashimira, went to the girl's home and tried to force her to return to Uttar Pradesh. When she refused to listen to him, her father and his friend dragged her to the jungles of Dachkulpada, the police said. There, the police said, the father raped the girl "to teach her a lesson" and then made his friend to brutalize her, while he watched. After the friend was done with the act, the father forced him to brutalize his daughter again, the police added. Fearing that the girl might report them to the police, the two strangled her with a dupatta, the police added.
The crime came to light after the father told a waiter at a Bhayander hotel about the rape and killing in an inebriate state. The girl’s boyfriend is still on the run.
