A six-year-old girl died in Iqbal Town area of Lahore earlier yesterday, after being viciously beaten up by her father and step-mother.
Police have registered a case against Khurram and his second wife Ghania, residents of Kashmir Block, on the complaint of the former’s first wife, Khadija.
“Khadija told us that her daughter got up late at night to go to the washroom. This infuriated his father who beat her so badly that she fainted.
She was taken to nearby hospital where doctors pronounced her dead,” police said.
Earlier, a 12-year-old girl found dead outside Mayo Hospital in Lahore was killed and dumped by her father and brother for ‘not making gol roti’, police said on today.
The father and brother of the child had beaten her to death for not making the chapattis properly and to hide their crime they had dumped her body and filed case of kidnapping and murder, police said quoting confession of the accused.
