A teenager in India has been arrested for killing his father after his father allegedly raped the boy's sister.
The unidentified 19-year-old reportedly murdered his dad on June 25 after learning that he had raped his married sister, reports the Times of India.
According to police, the traumatized rape victim called her brother and told him about the sexual assault. The father had allegedly raped his daughter twice on the morning of June 25. The son then reportedly rushed home and confronted his father about the matter, and then strangled him to death.
"The rape survivor had returned to stay with her mother [for the last] month due to troubled relationship with her husband in Devbhoomi Dwarka district," said P S Koringa, a sub-inspector with the local police. "Her father, who worked as casual laborer, came home once every 10-15 days," he added.
This is not the only recent case of patricide reported in India.
On June 20, The Times of India reported a story headlined, "Father killed by his son over suspicion." The son in question, Rahul Golawatia, allegedly beheaded his father because he had an eye on one of his female friends, according to police.
His son had warned his father to keep his eye off the girl, but he did not heed the warning. The father's head was found 25 feet away from the body by local residents who saw the body lying in a pool of blood.
On June 12, The Times of India reported on another son who killed his father. The son, identified only as Dabbu, allegedly killed his father, Ishwar Tyagi, in order to get his share in the family's property.
The accused said his four brothers and parents did not provide him with enough money despite all of them being affluent.
In a Times of India patricide story dated April 3, Kanti Tadpada was arrested for killing his father, Bhagwan, with an axe after his father told him to get a job. "We had activated our local sources after the incident, and on Saturday we received an information that Tadpada was hiding in a farm near his village. We raided the farm and nabbed him," a police official said. The father died on the scene after his son reportedly sliced him in multiple locations with the axe.
