A man was arrested after reporting his young daughter missing.

Police in Islamabad, Pakistan, arrested a father on charges of murder for killing his daughter because she made bread for him that was not perfectly round.

12-year-old Aniqa Khalid of Lahore, was killed and her body was discarded in a field. Two days later, the girl’s father Muhammad Khalid, filed a report, saying that his daughter had disappeared.

Police officer Muhammad Javed said that officers found the body of the girl with evidence of violence.

After an investigation, police arrested the father and he confessed to the crime, Javed said. The man’s 16-year-old son was also arrested for being an accomplice by helping his father in the crime.

The father told police during interrogation that he was furious because the bread the 12-year-old girl baked was not round as he liked and it was also burned.

The father is facing charges of murder.
