A seven-year old girl was brutally murdered with a kitchen knife by her mother and her paramour after she had caught them in a “compromising position” in East Delhi’s Ghazipur area early on Thursday, police said.To mislead the police, the mother cooked up stories and said somebody killed her in the name of “black magic”. The duo was arrested in the evening.”The mother and her paramour, Sudhir, hatched a conspiracy after the minor girl saw them in an awkward position. Initially, a missing complaint was registered with the police. Later her body was recovered with her throat slit,” said Omvir Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), East.The girl was last seen watching TV with her younger brother. Her parents said she had gone missing, raised an alarm and alerted neighbours who also could not find her. Later, at 11 am, the police was informed.The police scanned the area and the girl was found on the terrace of an adjacent building. The building has several houses with terraces linked to each other.The prime suspect in the case was another man who lived barely a few metres away from the house and had been missing since the crime.Police officials sent the body for post-mortem. During the probe it was revealed that the mother was close to the man and he was seen entering and leaving the building at times.The mother later confessed that her daughter had caught her with her paramour in a comprising position. “The girl was hell-bent on telling her father what she had seen despite her mother pestering her not to do so. In fear that her daughter might spill the beans, she took her to the terrace of the adjacent building and asked her paramour to come along as well. The duo later killed her using a kitchen knife,” said an investigating official.
