Bengaluru: Woman kills daughter, 3, for backing her father in fight over watching TV | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: A 26-year-old woman allegedly strangled her three-year-old daughter to death at an under-construction building at BDA Layout, near Nagarbhavi, on Tuesday night.
Reason: The child sided with her father when the couple fought over what to watch on TV earlier in the day.
Sudha, a resident of Mallathahalli and a housekeeping staffer at a tiles shop, has been arrested.
The incident came to light on Wednesday morning, when passersby noticed the girl’s body. Annapoorneshwari Nagar police rushed to the spot and identified the girl as Vinutha, the only daughter of Sudha and Eeranna, a daily -wage labourer. On Tuesday, Vinutha was reported missing in Mallathahalli and Sudha had filed a complaint with Jnanabharathi police. She told police she had taken her daughter to a chaat shop and the girl went missing while she was busy paying the bill.
Police summoned Sudha and Eeranna to the spot to identify the body and the couple broke down.
Police found Sudha’s behaviour suspicious and questioned her to know more about Tuesday night’s chaat shop visit.
Sudha soon cracked up and confessed to have strangled Vinutha to death.
Sudha told police she killed her daughter because the child liked and supported her father more than her. Police said Eeranna would be away from 6am to 8pm daily on work and come home for lunch.
“On Tuesday, Eeranna came home for lunch around 2pm. His daughter was watching TV at the time. Eeranna took the remote and changed the channel to watch news. His wife objected to him watching news channels all the time. She scolded him and told him that he needn’t come home if he wanted to watch news. That’s when Vinutha supported Eeranna and asked her mother to keep quiet and allow her father to watch TV; the girl said her mother had gone mad. Sudha lost her cool and murdered Vinutha the same night,” said Sanjeev M Patil, deputy commissioner of police (west).
Police said Sudha would take her daughter along with her to the tiles shop, where she worked from 9am to noon. Vinutha would come home and narrate to her father everything that would happen at her mother’s workplace and this too riled Sudha.
