A dad took matters into his own hands after his wife allegedly caught a teenage boy raping his baby daughter. The 17-year-old was accused of molesting the seven-month-old baby in 2014 after his wife allegedly caught him in the act.
He was arrested and was sent to a juvenile remedial home as he awaited trial. But just before his court hearing on April 19, the girl’s father, who is 25, claimed he was going to forgive the teen and accept an out of court settlement.
He even offered to drive the boy home to the village where they both live in Kotli Ablu. But halfway through the trip, the father stopped the bike and attacked the teenager, tying him to a tree before chopping off his hands with a machete.
He then reportedly climbed back on the bike and fled the scene, leaving the teen critically injured on the side of the road. He was taken to hospital after villagers found him screaming for help and his condition was described as critical.
Police are now hunting for the father who has gone on the run and have charged him with attempted murder.
