Man 'Buries 10-year-old Daughter Alive Because She Is A Girl'
A man from Tripura, India, has been arrested for trying to bury his 10-year-old daughter alive because she was a girl.
Abdul Hussein dug a pit in his back garden while his wife was out, and then put his daughter in the hole with her hands roped together and her mouth taped up.
He then filled up the pit to chest level and when Abdul's wife returned home he put a bamboo basket over their daughter's head, with the intention of burying her completely later on, NDTV reports.
But his wife began to question where the little girl was, and she was soon discovered by neighbours.
They are said to have beaten up the dad before calling police.
Abdul was then arrested, and now faces a charge of attempted murder.
