A six-year-old girl Bharti was killed by her father because she missed counting 12. This shocking incident took place in village Balapur—250 km from Aurangabad, Maharashtra.
The father, Sanjay Kute, a 32-year-old labourer, slapped the little one and then in a fit of rage made her swallow an onion. The suffocated child started foaming out of her mouth- while her mother stood there as a mute spectator.
Once the child went unconscious; Sanjay Kute rushed her to the nearest hospital where she was declared brought dead. After this, the accused got scared and apparently buried the body in the village graveyard.
But the girl’s mother revealed the happening to the police after which Sanjay was arrested and booked under IPC Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender). The remains of the girl were retrieved and sent for autopsy.
