Bhawanipatna: A three-year-old was allegedly strangulated to death by her step-mother on Saturday. The incident occurred at Lakhpadar village under Narla Police limits here.

The minor was the only daughter of Jugeshwar Sa and his first wife Gandharbi. After Gandharbi’s untimely death, Jugeshwar had remarried Asha Sahoo.

On the fateful day, the minor had  just returned home in the evening after spending whole day playing, informed locals. The step-mother, for some unknown reason strangulated the little child.

Jugeshwar Sa returned home late night after finishing his work at Rupragarh and was told by his wife that the child had slept off. His fatherly instincts kicked in and he checked on his daughter. He found out that the child was dead already and there were blood marks around her mouth.

The news spread like wildfire in the entire locality. Without any delay, the deceased child’s maternal uncle filed a complaint alleging that the lady had strangulated his niece to death. Narla Police have initiated a probe based on the complaint.
