Abdul Hussein, an Indian father has been arrested after gagging and tying his ten year old daughter before burying her in the ground whilst his wife was out. Asked why he buried the girl, the father told because she was a girl.
The incident which took place in Tripura, India, according to a report via the UK’s mirror saw Abdul Hussein dig a pit in his back garden while his wife was out, and then put his daughter in the hole with her hands roped together and her mouth taped up.
Her dad is then said to have filled up the pit to chest level, with pictures showing the young girl with her arms and head above the dirt floor.
When the man’s wife returned home he put a bamboo basket over their daughter’s head, with the intention of burying her completely later on, NDTV reports.
