A furious father is facing murder charges after he treated his teenage daughter’s alleged rapist to dinner before torturing him to death.
The man’s 14-year-old daughter was allegedly raped two months earlier by the 45-year-old married man.
He reportedly strapped the alleged rapist to a chair, burned his genitals with heated tongs and strangled him.
I BURNED HIS GENITALS ONCE, HE SCREAMED. I DID IT AGAIN, HE SHUDDERED.

Police say the father turned himself in following the incident, giving a detailed statement of the elaborate torture methods he had carried out.
“I burned his genitals once, he screamed. I did it again, he shuddered. When I did it the third time … he did not move. He was dead … I did not want to kill him,” the father reportedly told the police
“The father called the medicine supplier over to his house, saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner,” an officer told the Indian Express.
“After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier’s genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself.”
Police allege the man had been planning the murder since his daughter told him about the incident the day it happened, but did not report it to police, fearing “a bad name for his daughter.”
