  • What would you do? Call the police or take care of it yourself?

    I'd love to take care of it myself in my own way, however, the court would not look favorably on my actions. A jury may see otherwise. I'd have to put my faith in the justice system to do the right thing.

    Furious over the alleged rape of his 14-year-old daughter by a 45-year-old married man, the father called the man to his house on Friday night, treated him to dinner and then tortured him to death, police said. He then went to the police station, surrendered himself and gave police a detailed account on how he tortured and murdered the man.
    The 36-year-old reportedly burned the man’s genitals using heated tongs and then strangled him to death. The incident was reported from Northeast Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area on Saturday.
    Based on the man’s statement, police said the deceased, a medicine supplier, had allegedly raped the man’s minor daughter two months ago. The father did not approach police fearing “a bad name for his daughter”.
    “The father called the medicine supplier over to his house saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner. After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier’s genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself,” an officer said.
    The father reportedly gave police a detailed account of how he tortured the man to death.
    “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,” the officer said.
    In his statement, the man told police that two months ago, while he was away at his shop in the area, the medicine supplier had come calling at his house. On finding the minor girl alone at home, he allegedly raped her. He threatened the girl with dire consequences if she spoke about the incident to anyone.
    Police said the girl, however, told her father about it the same day. The man also told police that he did not approach them as he feared that neighbours and relatives would blame his daughter for the incident.
    Police said the father had been planning the murder since the day he found out about his daughter’s alleged rape. He further told police that he used to get furious whenever he saw the man happy with his family while his daughter was suffering.

      There are some things worth killing over knowing full well that the consequences will probably mean life in prison.

        What makes you think that a court in India will be substantially different in this situation that it would be here in the US?

        I dunno - this dude just might have crossed that line - just a little bit.

          Sadly, culture has a LOT to do with the father's reaction.

            Fourteen yr. olds have a way of not always telling the truth. Think about it. If you were the alleged rapist and did rape the girl, would you go back to the house when invited by the father? The father might have commited a crime worse than rape.

              Very difficult to make any logical descion based upon the minimal amount of information that was printed.
              Sneaky Snake is very accurate in his analyzing the vague and alleged scenario. In doing so questioning the testimony that has NOT been subject of cross examination.
              More than on a few occasions, the emotion of a vigilante influenced the vigilante to react. Potentially arriving at the incorrect conclusion, by then it's too late for everyone involved..

              This is why beyond verbal testimony EVIDENCE is required. Belief is NOT.
              An investigation takes place.
              Then the EVIDENCE is weighed against the allegations.
              In this case self professed, confessed "premeditation'' may be of significant influence in any judicial proceedings.

                Strotter and SneakySnake both make valid points and there is not enough information to make any kind of a good decision here. Heated tongs though....
