Tamil Nadu: Tribal woman, 20, lover arrested for killing her daughter | Coimbatore News – Times of India

COIMBATORE: The rural police arrested a Thammampathi tribal settlement resident and her lover on Monday for murdering her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter on Saturday.
Police identified the victim as Nivanyasree, daughter of Sarojini, 20, and P Manikandan. Sarojini was staying with her parents after a tiff with Manikandan. Her parents brokered peace and brought her to Manikandan’s house last Friday. On Saturday morning, Manikandan left for work. After receiving information that his daughter was taken to the Vettaikaran Government Hospital, he rushed to the hospital. Sarojini told him that she found the girl unconscious and immediately took her to the hospital, where doctors declared her dead.
Police suspected foul play and registered a case under Section 174 CrPC (unnatural death). “Sarojini gave contradictory statements. When we asked her about her relationship with P Bomman, 27, of Sarkkarpathy tribal settlement, she confessed to the crime. She found the girl to be a hindrance to their illicit relationship and had strangled her to death,” a police officer said.
Sarojini was booked under Section 302 (punishment for murder) and Bomman was booked under Section 109 (punishment of abetment if the act abetted is committed in consequence and where no express provision is made for its punishment) of the Indian Penal Code. The duo was remanded in judicial custody. Bomman was lodged in the Avinashi sub-jail and Sarojini was lodged in the special prison for women in Coimbatore.
