A six-year-old choked on an onion allegedly shoved into her throat by her father as punishment for not being able to count from 1-15 in the right sequence. Later he buried the body in the village graveyard.
The incident occurred on July 9 in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district. The family lived at Belapur village, on the outskirts of Aurangabad city. It was only discovered on July 11 night after the girl’s mother mustered the courage to go to the police.
Accused Sanjay Kute (32) was arrested subsequently. The child’s body has been recovered and the remains have been sent for autopsy.
