Father killed and burned his 13-year-old daughter

A father from India has been shocked cause he strangled his 13-year-old daughter and burned her body because, as he said, the girl spoke to a boy from her school. The death of 13-year-old Radhika was initially considered suicide but autopsy revealed indications of murder.

The 13-year-old’s parents, according to the Independent newspaper, saw her talking to a boy several times from her school in Telangana, India. She explained that it was a formal discussion but her father was angry and attacked her.

According to reports, during the fight the man hit the girl’s head against the wall. The police said the parents of the 13-year-old confessed they killed her “out of anger because her deed could spoil their reputation in the village.”

“They were shocked when they realized their daughter was no longer alive and they were afraid they would be arrested. So they threw kerosene and burned the body to look like suicide. They then complained that the girl committed suicide because she was depressed, “said a police spokesman.
