The victim’s father Santosh filed a complaint against Sudama Devi

The victim’s father Santosh filed a complaint against Sudama Devi following which she was arrested. Kadipur SHO, Ashok Kumar Singh said a long-standing tension between Sudama and Pooja was the prime reason behind the gruesome act.

'Sudama left the house with the girl and committed the crime'

"Neighbours recounted an argument between Pooja and Sudama in the morning. Pooja's alleged derogatory comments about Sudama's son and family, made in front of onlookers, seemed to have fuelled the woman’s rage. Hours later, Sudama left the house with the girl and committed the crime," said the SHO. Santosh and Pooja have a son,10, and another daughter, 4.
