Father confess his daughter murder, fled as he was unable to kill himself

  • | Tuesday | 20th April, 2021

According to reports, Sanu had also tried to purchase SIM cards using a relative’s Aadhaar card, at least three months before the incident. This has led the police to believe that Sanu had planned his escape. 

It was on March 22, 13-year-old Vaiga’s dead body was found floating in the Muttar river in Kerala`s Ernakulam district. Almost a month after her death, Kochi police have formally arrested her father, Sanu Mohan, for murdering his daughter. Though the father has ‘confessed’ to killing his child, the police are grappling with discrepancies in his statement and have said they will depend on scientific proof to prove the case.

On March 21, Sanu, had dropped his wife Remya at a relative’s house in Alappuzha and had headed back to his apartment at Kangarappady in Kochi, along with Vaiga. Sanu told the police that he had a debt amounting to crores and wanted to kill his entire family. However, since his wife would not agree to such a scheme, he planned to murder Vaiga and then take his own life. However, after murdering Vaiga, he was unable to harm himself and therefore he fled.

The Commissioner said that Sanu left Kochi and then entered Tamil Nadu via the Walayar check post, and a CCTV visual had captured the same. In the last three weeks, he has been to Tamil Nadu, Goa and Karnataka.

Moreover, the post-mortem report found high alcohol content in Vaiga’s dead body, although, Sanu has insisted that he did not feed liquor to the child. This aspect will also be relooked into, including inspecting if the post-mortem report was wrong, police said.
