Faridabad, September 13
Police said they arrested a 35-year-old woman on allegations of murdering her 8-year-old daughter three days after the child disappeared suddenly.
The woman was arrested after footage from a security camera in the neighbourhood showed the child was last seen leaving the house with her mother, sources said.
The sources claimed the woman had “admitted” to killing the child because she believed that she had been possessed by “some spirits” and she believed that such an event bring her relief.
Police began looking for the child after her father, Rajesh Kumar---who is employed as a security guard at a private company--- filed a missing person’s report.
Police sources claimed the suspect took the child to Bhagola village, strangled her and dumped her body. Police claimed they found the victim’s body on Friday evening.
The victim is the youngest if three siblings. Originally from Pratapgarh district in Uttar Pradesh, her family has been staying in rented accommodations in the city for many years now.
A local court remanded the suspect in police custody for a day.
