Girl accuses her father of killing her mother

New Delhi: An 18-year-old girl in Delhi has accused her father of torturing and killing her mother for property. The girl, Geeta, has registered a case of murder and domestic violence against her father.

Geeta says that her father Anil Yadav poisoned her mother on May 10 at their Rohini residence.

He apparently had his eye on her ancestral property.

Anil Yadav denies these allegations and claims that his wife died of a heart attack.

But Geeta is afraid that her life is also in danger and is demanding police protection. She is now staying with her maternal uncle.

"I want protection from my father. If he can spend 20 years with my mother and still not love her, then how can he have any sympathy for me," the girl says.
