Man kills daughter and himself in MP

10-1425973181-hangingBhind, MP, Jul 29 - A man, who strangulated his five-year-old malnutritioned daughter to death, committed suicide by hanging himself when neighbours discovered his crime at Hanumantpura village, said the police. Damodar Gole (30) was not able to provide treatment to his daughter Mansi for malnutrition as he was not financially strong. Besides, he himself had drinking habits that caused frequent quarrels with his wife, Mithilesh. A week ago, following an argument, his wife went to her maternal home along with their two sons Atul (3) and Anshu (2) but left Mansi behind. Yesterday, when the condition of his daughter deteriorated, Damodar strangulated her in a fit of rage and buried her body in the verandah. When neighbours learnt about the incident, they informed police and dug her body out. However, the accused took his own life before police could arrive. The bodies were sent for post-mortem to community healthcare centre at Gohad. Health officer Alok Sharma said the girl was suffering from malnutrition and her condition was very bad.
