BARPETA, Sept 19 - One Sahidul Islam was arrested at Helacha Pam Gaon in Barpeta district last night on the charge of killing his two-year-old daughter.
According to information available, Islam allegedly killed his daughter, Semina Yasmin, on Monday.
Islam, who works in a private company in Lucknow, had left home after committing the crime. He warned his elder brother, Mahidul Islam, over phone not to enter his home. But when Mahidul entered Islam�s house to fetch his bicycle, he saw the body of the child lying in a pool of blood.
Islam had married two women and the deceased child belonged to his second wife, Aklima Khatun, who stays at her maternal home in his absence.
Mahidul informed the neighbours and rushed to the Barpeta Road Railway Station, apprehending that Islam might flee to his workplace in Lucknow. At the station, Mahidul encountered Rumala Khatun, Islam�s first wife, along with her three children. She was immediately handed over to the police.
Meanwhile, the police swung into action and after an intensive search operation, the murder accused was nabbed last night at Helacha Pam with the help of village defence party personnel.
A case (No. 435/18) under Sections 120(B)/302/34 of the IPC has been registered at the Sarthebari Police Station in this connection.
