“Preeti is a daughter from Tej’s first wife. After the death of his first wife, he married another woman, who gave birth to a specially abled boy. He was upset due to his family situation, hence decided to kill his daughter,” additional deputy commissioner of police Riyaz Iqbal said.

“The incident took place near a wedding hall on Monday night at 10pm after he had taken her far from home asking her to go to his brother’s house. There, he smothered her mouth and slit her throat with a sharp-edged weapon and threw her near the bushes to die. The girl regained consciousness and came to the road bleeding from her neck and passersby informed the police,” a police official said.

Tej Singh belongs to Sagar and works at a tent house in Bhopal.
