Woman and lover arrested for killing 7-year-old daughter

A woman and her lover were arrested on Thursday for allegedly killing the woman's seven-year-old daughter. The girl, Ikra, a student of Class II, had gone missing from her home in Kanchan Park in Loni on March 12, and was found dead the next day. According to police, the suspects have been identified as Rashida and Shenewaj, who were having an extra-marital affair and killed the girl after she told her father about it.

"The duo was arrested from Loni railway station on Thursday when they were trying to flee," said Loni SHO A P Singh. "After the body of Ikra was found, we questioned many people from the neighbourhood. During the course of investigation, we came to know about the relationship between Rashida and Shenewaj. This gave us ample reason to believe they might have been behind the murder," added Singh. "During interrogation, they confessed to the crime," continued Singh.

The distraught father said he could not believe his daughter was killed by her mother. "My daughter, Ikra, went missing on the evening of March 12. My wife said she had sent her to the nearby grocery store to buy some rice. Rashida told me Ikra had brought the rice back home, but took Rs 2 from her and ran outside to buy toffees for herself and never returned," said Yaseen, father of the deceased. "We informed the police and searched for her ourselves, made several announcements over a public address system, but all in vain as she was to be found nowhere," he said. The girl's body was eventually found in a gunny bag dumped on a vacant plot on March 13. "I still can't believe my daughter was killed by her own mother. I hope Rashida and Shenewaj get the severest punishment," said Yaseen.

According to police, the girl had seen her mother in a compromising position with Shenewaj and had reported the matter to her father. The enraged mother decided to get rid of her and called Shenewaj. They strangulated her and hid her body in the house. On the evening of March 13, they dumped the body near Kanchan Park, close to the house. The accused have been booked under Section 302 of IPC and sent to jail.
