In a heartbreaking incident reported from Thane, when a minor got her first period at the age of 12, her 30-year-old brother, who should have been supportive of her, felt that she was having an affair. Over his false assumption, the 30-year-old brother ended torturing his 12-year-old sister to death, burning several of her body parts, and making sure she succumbed to her burn injuries.
Tragedy struck a family in Ulhasnagar when a 30-year-old security guard was arrested for the brutal murder of his own 12-year-old sister. The reason? An alleged suspicion that the young girl had engaged in physical activity with someone.
As shocking as it may sound, police sources have revealed that this gruesome incident was nothing more than a grave misunderstanding. The girl had recently reached menarche, her first menstruation, and her brother had mistaken the bloodstains on her clothes as evidence of her having an affair.
The brother’s anger and paranoia escalated to horrific levels as he allegedly used tongs to scorch his sister’s mouth, back, and other parts of her body, leaving her with severe burn injuries.
Sadly, the girl’s injuries proved to be fatal, and she was declared dead upon arrival at Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar. A case of murder has been registered under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code.
The Facts of the Matter
The need of educating men about women’s issues has once again come to the forefront with the recent case of a 30-year-old security guard who allegedly killed his 12-year-old sister. It is not enough to simply teach young girls about their bodies and the changes they will experience during puberty. We must also prioritize educating young boys and men about these issues, including menstruation, sexual health, and gender equality.
In a quiet, unassuming neighborhood in Ulhasnagar, a 12-year-old girl’s life was cut tragically short by the very person who was supposed to protect her. Her 30-year-old brother, a security guard by profession, was arrested for allegedly killing her over a gross misunderstanding.
Minor Gets Period, Brother Gets Paranoid
The girl, who had recently reached menarche – the onset of menstruation – had stained her clothes with blood, which was enough to raise suspicion in her brother’s mind. However, instead of approaching her with kindness and understanding, he accused her of having an affair with someone.
Minor’s Nightmare Begins
What followed was a nightmare that no child should ever have to endure. The brother, in a fit of rage, took a pair of tongs and seared her delicate skin, leaving her with excruciating burn wounds that covered her mouth, back, and other parts of her body. The torture continued for four agonizing days, during which the girl suffered in silence.
It wasn’t until the girl’s condition had deteriorated to a critical level that she was taken to Central Hospital in Ulhasnagar. But it was too late. The girl, who had lost her mother and lived with her brother and sister-in-law, was declared ‘brought dead.’
A case of murder was registered under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code, and the girl’s body was sent for a post-mortem. According to Senior Inspector Madhukar Kad of Ulhasnagar police station, the accused had allegedly started harassing the child, suspecting her of having an affair.
