Father kills 14-month-old baby to marry again in Raichur

Raichur, Sep 5 (IANS): In a shocking case, a man killed his 14-month-old baby in Karnataka's Raichur district as he felt that the child would hamper his chances of remarriage, officials said on Tuesday.

The man confessed to the police that he committed the crime.

The accused was identified as 32-year-old Mahantesh, a resident of Kanasavi village in Lingasugur taluk. The deceased child was known as Abhinava.

The accused had maintained that his wife had an affair and he wanted to go for a second marriage. However, he thought that the child from the first wife would be a hurdle.

He killed the child and hid the dead body beneath small boulders in the village. After a missing case was lodged, the police suspected and grilled Mahantesh. First he maintained that he had burnt the body, and after three days he showed the place where he had hid the child's body.

The police have recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem. Mudagal police are investigating the case.

    Horrific crime! BTW; many such types of crimes have taken place in these areas! In the same region, in one case, a man had killed five people at once because he believed his children were fathered by someone else; recently his death sentence waiver plea was dismissed by the honorable HC saying it was a rarest of rare case!

    Poor Child , May that baby RIP. I believe that this is a result of our so-called ancient culture. This culture promotes unethical behavior and disharmony, and it also fosters caste-based discrimination.
