Indian Man Invites Teen Daughter's Alleged Rapist To His Home Then Tortures, Murders Him

A father in India has been charged with murder after he invited his 14-year-old daughter’s alleged rapist to his home for dinner and tortured him to death.

The father was identified early last month as 36-year-old Jamil Gupta, who told police that he strangled Omkar Singh until he passed out, and then tied him up before burning his genitals with hot tongs, the Daily Mail reports.

Singh, 45, allegedly raped and impregnated Gupta’s daughter, boasting that he wouldn’t ever be prosecuted because he was well-connected to local police.

Gupta told MailOnline in great detail of how he tortured and murdered the rapist: “Initially, I didn’t want to kill him and asked him to quietly leave my home and life but he taunted me. I became very, very angry and lost my mind. I wrapped a towel around his neck and tied his hand, and dragged him to the floor. I switched on the gas and put the iron tongs and made it hot. I thought he was dead but he was still breathing, so with one hand I strangled him and also put the heated tong on his genitals. He screamed so loudly so I put a part of the towel in his mouth to silence his noise. I burnt his genitals a second time, his body twisted and I was so enraged that I did it a third time in succession. After some time he stopped breathing and collapsed on the ground.”

The father-of-six, from the Kahjuri Khas region, turned himself in to the police following the incident and he was charged with murder, a crime punishable by up to 25 years in prison in India.

According to the Indian Express, police said the girl told her father about the incident the same day it happened. But the man did not report it to police, fearing “a bad name for his daughter.”
