One man in India certainly won’t win father of the year anytime soon. Last week, Abdul Hussein tried to bury his 10-year-old daughter alive simply because she was a girl. Luckily for the little girl, her neighbors intervened before Hussein could complete his heinous deed.
Hussein waited until his wife was out, then allegedly bound his young daughter with rope and taped her mouth shut.
He then took her to his garden and began to bury her. By the time his wife returned home, Hussein managed to bury his daughter up to her chest. Hussein placed a bamboo basket on her head to hide the half-buried girl until he could come back and finish the job.
Hussein’s wife demanded to know where her daughter was. The family’s neighbors soon discovered the little girl buried in the garden. That is when they confronted Hussein and called the police.
The police arrived and arrested Hussein after he was beaten by his neighbors. He is currently being charged for attempted murder. The almost deadly incident occurred in Tripura, in northern India. Sadly, violent incidents against daughters like these are fairly common throughout India.
I’m glad that this father was caught before anything worse happened to the poor girl. I hope she can get the help she needs to recover from such a traumatic experience.
