One Indian father reportedly took the law into his own hands by deciding to take revenge on his child’s attacker. He allegedly invited his daughter’s rapist to his house for dinner before torturing him to death.
He cooked the 45-year-old man dinner on Friday night before wrestling him into a chair and burning his genitals with heated tongs, say police. The furious father, 36, allegedly strangled the man to death as planned since his 14-year-old daughter was sexually abused two months ago.
The incident took place in Northeast Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area. The father did not approach authorities about the original attack because he feared that members of his family and community would blame his daughter.After he strangled him to death, he immediately went to a police station to hand himself in, telling them everything that he had done.
A police spokesperson said: ‘Based on his statement, we sent a team to the spot and recovered the body. It has been sent for a post-mortem examination and his family has been informed. A case of murder has been registered and the 36-year-old man was arrested.’
