Hyderabad: A man allegedly killed his three-year-old daughter by throwing her into a well in Telangana's Adilabad district apparently after a fight with his wife over additional dowry, police said on Thursday.
Accused Ch Tirupati took his daughter to Krishnapalli village Tuesday (February 2) afternoon and allegedly threw her into a well. The girl's body was found floating late last night, Nannel Police Station Sub-Inspector A Tirupati said.
A case on the charges of murder and dowry harassment has been registered against the accused following a complaint by his wife Ramya, he said.
Ramya alleged that she was being harassed by her husband for additional dowry and she further accused him of killing their daughter, the SI said.
"As per preliminary investigation, it seems that Tirupati killed her daughter. He is absconding," the police officer said, adding a manhunt has been launched to nab him.
