A 26-year-old Indian, Nawab Ali Qureshi has confessed to slitting his four-year-old daughter’s throat as a sacrifice to God during Ramadan.
According to Police, Nawab claimed he wanted to please God by ‘sacrificing’ his beloved daughter Rizwana. He reportedly admitted to the murder on Friday, claiming he had been possessed by a devil and ‘I had to offer my most prized possession to Allah’.
Police added that on Thursday afternoon, he took the four-year-old Rizwana to the market, bought her lots of goodies, and told her he loved her very much. “At night, while the family slept on the terrace, he took Rizwana to a room on the ground floor, recited holy verses & slit her throat. Then he went back to sleep,”
Times of India reports that he earlier blamed Rizwana’s death on a family cat but finally confessed to the crime on Friday, June 8, 2018.
