A couple allegedly killed their six-year-old daughter near Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad district. According to the reports, the couple killed their child in a belief that their next child will be healthy.
The police informed that the girl was malnourished and had developed rickets. A tantrik is said to have advised the parents to bury the girl's body at home and the next child will be healthy.
Based on a neighbour’s complaint, a police team visited Anandpal's home in Chaudharpur village and dug the ground to find the body of the girl identified as Tara. After the postmortem was conducted, it was found that Tara was kept without food or water for five days and she died of suffocation.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Tara’s grandmother said, “We tried several medicines, but nothing worked on her and she kept getting weaker. My grandson has also developed rickets.”
She further stated that the girl was buried inside the house as her mother did not want to part with her.
An FIR has been registered against Tara’s parents and the police will be arresting them soon.
