Kaurbaha Police on September 28th, 2019 arrested a man for throwing his two-and-half-year old daughter into the river.

The locals alleged that Birbal Boro (35) was ailing for a long time and driven by superstitious belief, he threw his daughter into the Borolia river. The incident has triggered a sensation in the region.

After the news spread, the family members along with the local villagers jumped into the river to rescue the baby but in vain. Later, a team of SDRF led by Tamulpur Police launched a rescue operation and recovered the body.

The local villagers handed the accused father to Kaurbaha Police. During interrogation, the accused has confessed of throwing his daughter on the advice of a self-styled godman who assured him that the ‘sacrifice’ will cure his ‘unidentified disease’.

Meanwhile, police have launched a massive manhunt to nab the self-styled godman.
