Palwal: A man was arrested for allegedly
killing his eight-year-old daughter after she resisted his
attempt to rape her in the district here, police said.

The victim, a student of class three, had gone missing
since November 28 last year and a report had been filed with
the police in the connection, they said.

The police yesterday recovered a decomposed body of a
girl near a railway crossing here, which was later identified
by the victim`s mother.

The father of the girl first tried to rape her and
later strangulated the minor to death when she resisted him
and then dumped her body near a tree, they said.

Victim`s mother alleged that her daughter was last
seen with her father near a railway track before she went
missing. He had been sexually harassing the girl for a long
time, she alleged.
