Ahmedabad: In a terrifying incident a father immolated his two daughters near Ahmedabad police CID office. The man, in his mid 30s, tied the hands of the victims and poured petrol over them and set them on fire. Both the girls died on the spot.
Sources told Dailybhaskar.com that Rathore has earlier tried to kill his daughters because he was wary of the fact that his teenage daughters will bring ‘bad name’ to him. He was suspicious about their activities and kept an eye on their activities.
The accused, identified as Govind Rathore, is a resident of D-Colony in Gujarat’s Naroda area. He took his two daughters Neha and Punam in his autorickshaw, after telling his wife Indu that he would drop them off at their school.
According to Meghaninagar police inspector DA Desai, ” Instead of taking them to school, Rathore drove the autorickshaw to a secluded place near the police CID office, at the Meghaninagar area, poured petrol on his vehicle when his daughters were in it and set it ablaze,” adding that both the girls died on the spot.
The bodies of Neha and Punam have been badly charred, said police. Rathore was nabbed by few passersby who caught him setting the auto rickshaw on fire. Another senor investigating cop said that few onlookers managed to douse the flames. But the girls were dead by then. Police is investigating the case and is yet to ascertain what prompted Rathore to kill his own daughters.
