Violence against women and girl child is continuing despite all stringent laws and massive awareness campaigns.
Each of these instances actually far more gruesome than earlier one.
In one such instance, a father is now accused of sacrificing her own daughter in name of religion.
The accused father from Rajasthan’s Piparcity area on Saturday has been arrested.
He committed the act to appease ‘Allah’ in the ongoing holy month of Ramzan, as per police.
The man identified as Nawab Ali sacrificed his elder daughter Rizwana, who was four yrs old.
She was found with her throat slit.
Police summoned the FSL team for probe and it turned out that Ali, his wife and two daughters, had slept together on the roof of their house.
But by the morning time, Rizwana was found missing.
The body was then discovered on ground floor of the house, a police official said.
Ali tried bizarre reasoning to convince the family that some animal may have killed the daughter.
But police claims that around midnight time, Ali took daughter downstairs, made her sit in his lap and recited Quranic verses before slitting her throat with a sharp-edged knife.
He then came back upstairs to sleep with the others.>
