A father was arrested on charges of attempted murder after allegedly burying his daughter alive because he really wanted to have a boy, police in India said.

Tripura Police said that they arrested Abdul Hussein, after he was accused of burying his 10-year-old daughter because she was not born a boy.

According to the police investigation, Hussein gagged and tied up his daughter before burying her in the ground of his backyard while his wife was out shopping.

While Hussein was filling up the hole with dirt, his wife came home and he quickly came inside, leaving his daughter half buried in the ground.

The woman began to question Hussein about their daughter, leaving him with no choice but confess that he buried her in the backyard.

The woman quickly alerted her neighbors, who held down Hussein until police arrived. Hussein has been charged with attempted murder.
