    ‘Superstitious’ Father Arrested For Throwing Baby Girl Into River In Tamulpur

    Driven by superstitious belief, the heartless father threw his daughter into the Borolia river

    Kaurbaha Police on September 28th, 2019 arrested a man for throwing his two-and-half-year old daughter into the river.

    The locals alleged that Birbal Boro (35) was ailing for a long time and driven by superstitious belief, he threw his daughter into the Borolia river. The incident has triggered a sensation in the region.

    After the news spread, the family members along with the local villagers jumped into the river to rescue the baby but in vain. Later, a team of SDRF led by Tamulpur Police launched a rescue operation and recovered the body.

    The local villagers handed the accused father to Kaurbaha Police. During interrogation, the accused has confessed of throwing his daughter on the advice of a self-styled godman who assured him that the ‘sacrifice’ will cure his ‘unidentified disease’.

    Meanwhile, police have launched a massive manhunt to nab the self-styled godman.
