One 34-year-old man allegedly planned and executed his minor daughters murder to marry in Delhi’s Aman Vihar area, police said.

The police had identified the accused as one Dharamvir.

Delhi Police told the media that the accused had fell in love with a woman after his wife died of Hepatitis B in June. The woman had agreed to marry him only if he did not burden her with her children’s care.

He also confessed to the police that he had planned to kill his sons too in the near future.

The murder of the girl came to surface after neighbours suspected a foul play.

Delhi police seized the minor’s body for autopsy on receiving a complaint from minors. The postmortem reports confirmed that the minor was strangulated to death.

During the course of investigation police team learnt that Sanjay, Dharamvir’s nephew had left for hometown. He was detained midway.
