No money to buy food, killed baby: Debt-hit techie to cops | India News

BENGALURU: He bought biscuits and chocolates for his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter after driving out of Bengaluru. He even played with her in the rear seat. But thoughts of harassment by lenders prevented him from returning home and he did the unimaginable – killing the little girl before trying to end his life.
This is what Rahul Paramar (45), a debt-ridden techie who survived the suicide attempt, told police. “She started crying and I didn’t have any money left with me. A worse situation awaited me if I returned home. I hugged her tight and killed her. My helplessness to buy her food made me take the decision. I jumped into the lake with her to kill myself, but didn’t drown,” he claimed.
Rahul, who was arrested on charges of killing his daughter Jiya and dumping her body in a lake near Kendatti on Bengaluru-Kolar highway, was on Friday taken by police for a spot mahazar as part of the crime-reconstruction procedure.
“Rahul said he regrets killing his daughter, but had no choice,” police sources said.
Rahul and Jiya had gone missing on November 15 after he took her out on the pretext of going to school. His wife Bhavya filed a missing complaint when they didn’t return home. The next morning, Jiya’s body surfaced in the lake and police suspected Rahul too may have died by suicide.
Rahul lost his job, suffered financial losses in Bitcoin business and faced a police inquiry for filing a false robbery case. He had pledged his gold and told his wife that he was robbed of the ornaments. He was reportedly attached to his daughter and decided to end her life and kill himself fearing the wrath of those he had borrowed money from.
“I had left home in the morning, planning to kill myself and my daughter. Many a time, I thought of driving back home. But thoughts of harassment stopped me from going back,” he said.
