In yet another ghastly act from Uttar Pradesh, a Muslim man allegedly beat his 6-year-old daughter to death after her head scarf slipped. The incident took place in Mamaura village in Agra district.
According to reports, Zafar alias Chand Miyan was seen thrashing his young daughter so brutally, that the villagers were ‘terrified’ to stop the man.
The reports also mentioned that the mother went around the village begging for help, but to no avail. He began digging a grave for his daughter and soon enough got arrested. The minor’s body was sent to post-mortem.
The villagers suggested that Zafar was a very conservative man and wanted to see women covering their heads at all time. [Indian Express]
