A Pakistani father has been arrested for murder after it emerged that he killed his 12-year old daughter for baking bread that wasn’t round enough.
According to police in Islamabad, 12-year old Aniqa Khalid of Lahore was killed on September 11 and her body dumped in a field. Two days later, her father filed a report claiming that she was missing.
Police later found her body and launched a probe after discovering that the body had evidence of violence. Aniqa’s dad was arrested on Thursday after he confessed during questioning, saying that he killed her because she baked bread that was both not round enough and burnt.
The victim’s 16-year old brother was also arrested for helping his father commit the crime.
