Assam: Father arrested in murder case of 1-year-old child in Gohpur


Assam Police on Friday morning arrested the alleged prime accused in the 1-year-old child’s murder case that took place in Gohpur, Assam on March 9.

The arrest was made after the deceased’s mother’s statement where she alleged that her child was killed by his own father identified as Sachin Bordoloi.

As per the police after committing the crime, the accused fled away from the spot and went to Cementchapri by train and later reached home by 3 pm.

”After committing the crime the accused went to Cementchapri and then around 3 pm he returned to his home. The mother of the deceased complained that it was the child’s father who murdered him. Acting on the complaint, the police apprehended him. So far it has come to the fore that he committed the crime due to some internal conflicts in the family,” the police official said while speaking to media over the matter.

The shocking incident came to the fore yesterday after the body of the one-year-old was found in Assam’s Gohpur. It was later revealed that the child would have been celebrating its first birthday; however, his life was cut short.

The mother of the child was informed about the incident and she immediately rushed to the scene where the body was found in Gohpur. Upon finding her lifeless child there, she broke down inconsolably.

According to initial reports, a bicycle along with a shopping bag was also found near the scene of the crime in Gohpur. The father had reportedly taken the child along with him on the pretext of going out for shopping.

The mother of the deceased child had said, “Stern action should be taken against the culprits who killed by son. My son did not do anything. He was innocent. I can’t comprehend why he had to be killed like this.”

 The locals of the area gathered outside the Gohpur Police Station demanding strict action against the accused father.
