Father Murders Tenant For Sexually Assaulting A Minor Daughter

A 52-year-old man allegedly murdered his tenant who he claimed had sexually assaulted his minor daughter around a month ago. The incident took place in Khajuri Khas area of North East Delhi last night. It was reported to the local police around 4 AM when the man walked in to the police station and told them that he has murdered his tenant and escorted a police team to the house where Omkar (45) was found dead.

"The man told us that Omkar had sexually assaulted his daughter around a month ago and threatened her of dire consequences if she revealed the matter to anyone. The family however came to know about the incident recently," said a police official.

Instead of reporting the matter to police, the girl's father decided to take revenge himself. Omkar who hailed from Madhya Pradesh had gone to his hometown to celebrate Diwali.

"On his return to Delhi, the 52-year-old man confronted him last night and in a fit of rage, strangled him to death. It seems that he was killed with a rope or something but the exact cause of death will be revealed following a postmortem," the officials said.

Omkar's family has been informed. He is survived by his wife and children at his native village in Madhya Pradesh. Meanwhile, the 14-year-old girl was given counselling by an NGO in the presence of her mother.
