A father is alleged to have invited his daughter’s rapist to his house for dinner before torturing him to death, Metro UK reported.
He is claimed to have cooked for the 45-year-old married man on Friday night before overpowering him, tying him to a chair and burning his genitals with heated tongs, say police.
The furious father, 36, is then accused of strangling the man to death in a murder plot which had been planned since his 14-year-old daughter was sexually abused two months ago.
The incident took place in Northeast Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area.
After the murder he walked into a police station and confessed to the killing – giving a gruesome account of how he tortured the man.
He said he did not approach the police out of fear that neighbours and relatives would blame his daughter for the incident.
A police spokesperson said: ‘Based on his statement, we sent a team to the spot and recovered the body. It has been sent for a post-mortem examination and his family has been informed. A case of murder has been registered and the 36-year-old man was arrested.’
