Man kills daughter for being a girl child, drinks poison in Agartala

Agartala: A man strangulated to death his two-year-old daughter in Tripura because she was a girl child, police said here Monday.

"Tapan Bhuyia, 47, a driver of a private vehicle, strangulated to death his daughter Supriya and then threw her body into a well at Bishalgarh," a police spokesman told reporters. Bishalgarh is 30 km south of here.

The police official said that Tapan after killing his daughter Sunday night consumed poison to kill himself. Neighbours took him to hospital in a critical condition.

"Tapan always tortured his wife for giving birth to two girl children instead of son. Before executing the crime, he sent his wife and elder daughter to a neighbour's house to see television," the police spokesman said.

Police arrested Tapan who is battling for his life at the Gobinda Ballav Pant Medical College and Hospital here.

Not a single HOSPITAL of national importance (in terms of quality and trusted brand) exists in TRIPURA which is a must for those helpless people of state who has to run around and rush to Chennai and other cities for treatment even during those critical hours of life! - Need of the hour is to go PROACTIVE and INVITE best of the brands available (e.g FORTIS, APPOLO, MANIPAL Hospitals) to set up their HOSPITAL CHAINS at AGARTALA. IMPOSSIBLE - just means I AM POSSIBLE! If India need to catch up with developed part of the world,the most strategically placed Northeast (especially TRIPURA) need to be made into a developed region in the shortest possible time! I strongly believe TRIPURA govt (in close co-ordination with Center,other concerned dignitaries & all corporate visionaries) can certainly achieve this sooner rather than late,which would definitely give its people a better employment opportunities,a better healthcare,a better access to quality education and a quality lifestyle!
