KOCHI: A special court on Wednesday sentenced a man to life imprisonment for murdering his daughter two years ago. The accused, Sanu Mohan, 42, was given a life sentence after he was found guilty of murdering his 10-year-old daughter, Vaiga, in March 2021.
The additional district and sessions judge K Soman also imposed a fine of Rs 1.7 lakh. Additionally, Mohan was given a cumulative 28-year imprisonment for various offences, including kidnapping, intoxication, and offences under the Juvenile Justice Act.
Of the 28 years, he will serve the highest punishment of 10 years in jail before the commencement of his life imprisonment.
Mohan, arrested in Karnataka on April 18, 2021, confessed to the crime, revealing that he had planned to take his own life after murdering his daughter.
The prosecution case was that the accused, facing financial troubles, planned to escape his liabilities by murdering his 10-year-old daughter, Vaiga, whom he deeply cared for.
On March 21, 2021, he deceived his wife and relatives, pretending to visit his uncle but took Vaiga with him. He purchased food and a cold drink for his daugther, and mixed it with liquor, causing Vaiga to become intoxicated.
Upon returning home in Ernakulam, he suffocated Vaiga in their flat. After cleaning the crime scene, he carried Vaiga to his car, discarded their phones, and drove to the Muttar River.
Around 10.30 pm, he allegedly threw his daughter into the river, confirming her drowning. The accused then fled to Coimbatore.
