In a spine-chilling incident, a couple in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad allegedly killed their own child and they've buried her inside their home. The incident reportedly took place in Chaudharpur village, where the parents killed their daughter who was malnourished and had developed rickets. According to police reports, the parents killed her to have a healthy child.
Police had reached Anandpal's home on neighbours' complaints. On digging the ground, they found Tara's frail body. A tantrik had advised them that if they bury the girl's body at home, the next child will be healthy, reports news agency ANI.
Tara's grandmother said that since her mother did not want to part with her, so she buried her in the house itself and wanted to build a temple inside.
Talking about Tara's health, she said, "We tried several medicines, but nothing worked on her and she kept getting weaker. My grandson has also developed rickets."
The post-mortem of Tara's body revealed that there was not even a morsel of grain in her stomach, said police. They also added that she died of suffocation.
"Post-mortem report has revealed that the girl was strangulated to death," Ravindra Gaur, a police officer from Moradabad said, adding that Tara's parents will soon be arrested.
