Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 26: A man has been arrested for allegedly killing his minor daughter to frame his rivals.
The man has been identified as Babloo Prajapati.
According to police reports, a 13-year-old-girl, Maya, was hacked to death in the Dhaura village under Mauranipur police circle in Jhansi on Friday.
Her father had claimed that nine persons (including two women) had committed the crime.
Babloo had told police that the accused snatched his axe and attacked him.
He said that he ran for his life and managed to escape, but his daughter Maya was hacked to death.
“We smelled something amiss right from the beginning. Upon detailed investigation, we found many facts that did not corroborate the story narrated by Babloo,” Jhansi Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Shivhari Meena said.
Later on, after sustained interrogation based on forensic facts, Babloo broke down and admitted his crime.
