    The girl was found dead with her throat slit at his residence on Friday morning.

    During the interrogation, the accused admitted to have killed his daughter to obtain Allah's blessings during Ramzan.

    The incident happened on Thursday afternoon after Qureshi took his beloved daughter Rizwana to the market, bought her lots of goodies, and told her he loved her very much.

    Late that night, while the family slept on the terrace, he took Rizwana to a room on the ground floor, recited holy verses & slit her throat. Then he went back to sleep.

    A case of murder was initially registered against unknown people after Shabana filed a complaint. A team of forensic experts summoned from Jodhpur collected blood and other pieces of evidence from the crime scene. Police began suspecting the father's involvement after questioning family members about the incident.
