Aligarh: Failing to repay a loan of mere Rs 10,000 the defaulters were punished by money lenders who strangulated their two-and-half-old daughter and gouged her eyes out.
The incident is reported from Aligarh’s Tappal area where the minor was strangulated to death with her eyes gouged out.
According to the region Police the minor was abducted on Wednesday night and was brutally killed in an act of revenge over a financial dispute the minor’s father had with the accused Zahid.
The UP Police has denied reports of rape, saying a team of doctors had been constituted to conduct a post-mortem examination, News18 reports.
“A case of kidnapping was registered on May 31. The accused have been arrested and they have confessed to the crime. It was a case of personal enmity but there is no sign of rape. The minor was strangled to death and her eyes were gouged out. The accused are in jail now,” Akash Kulhari, SSP Aligarh, said.
He added: “The girl’s father told us that he had a money dispute with Zahid who had threatened the former with dire consequences. We questioned Zahid and it was revealed that the body was hidden at Aslam’s house. The body was later found at the garbage dump.”
A huge protest was carried out by the family members and relatives of the deceased who blocked roads but things came under control later.
