News from India, via the Independent:
An Indian man has been arrested after he allegedly attempted to bury his 9-year-old daughter alive.
Adul Hussein allegedly dug a pit in the back garden of his home in Putia, a small village near the India-Bangladesh border, while his wife was away from the house on Friday afternoon.
Police sources told Indian news channel NDTV that the man’s “dislike” of his daughter Rukshena prompted his actions.
Hussein reportedly tied Rukshena’s hands and feet together before placing tape over her mouth and placing her in the hole, which came up to her chest as pictures show.
But his wife came home then, so he ran out of time to finish burying his daughter.
