Dad is identified as DHANNA RAM.
Rape & murder of daughter under influence of Devi: Father
A day after the gruesome rape and murder of a three-year-old girl, allegedly by her father Dhanna Ram, police said that the accused had tried to mislead his wife initially by telling her that he murdered his daughter under the influence of a “Devi”.
“When the pandemonium broke in the room, Dhanna Ram’s wife Rita Devi tried to rescue the daughter. But he pushed Devi and hit the daughter repeatedly with a knife and iron plate on her head. He also told Rita that he was doing it as a ‘Devi’ had told him to do so,” said Sector 14 Station House Officer Aman Kumar.
Police said wounds and bruises that were visible on the body of the child showed the fury with which the father allegedly struck her repeatedly.
Police are also looking into the background of Dhanna Ram. “We found that he has no previous criminal record in Panchkula. But we will find out if he had any criminal history in UP, where he is from,” said another police officer.
