Kollam: A day after the police arrested the grandfather of the 10-year-old girl, who was found dead at her house two months back, the girl’s father has alleged that she was killed and did not commit suicide as claimed by the police.

According to police, the girl committed suicide due to sexual abuse by her grandfather. He alleged that the girl was killed by the grandfather, his son and daughter-in-law.

Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, the girl’s father said the day his daughter was found dead, he had given his statement against the grandfather to the Kundara police. He said he had also told police about the role of his son and daughter-in-law, but they did not pay heed to his complaints.

‘In fact, they slapped me and verbally abused me, stating that I used my child sexually,” he said, adding that if proper counselling was given to the girl, the whole incident would have come to light much earlier and she would have been alive now. The grandfather and others would have landed in jail by this time, he said.
