DEHLI, India (KRON) — A 36-year old Indian man is facing murder charges after admitting he invited the man suspected of raping his teenaged daughter over for dinner then torturing him to death.
The accused killer told police the victim had visited his home two months ago. When finding out the adults were gone, the medicine salesman reportedly raped the man’s 14-year old daughter.
The girl told her father about the attack but he says he didn’t report it out of fear that people would blame his daughter. Instead he allegedly spent two months plotting his revenge.
“The father called the medicine supplier over to his house saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner. After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier’s genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself,” police told the Indian Express newspaper.
Police say they sent officers to the accused killer’s house and found the body. The man told police he became enraged watching the alleged rapist having fun with his family while his daughter was suffering.
“I burned his genitals once, he screamed. I did it again, he shuddered. When I did it the third time..he did not move. He was dead…I did not want to kill him,” the 36-year-old father has reportedly confessed. He tortured a 45-year-old medicine supplier after he found out that the supplied had allegedly raped his 14-year-old daughter and made her pregnant.
Indian prosecutors say the father will be charged with murder.
