Girls seek death for father

Reason: The daughters Vipsyana, 13, and Ayeshana, 8, have charged their father Amitabh Srivastava, a sergeant working with the Indian Air Force, with burning their mother Kiran a few days back.

Kiran, with 60 per cent burns, was rushed to Rehman Hospital in Motihari, which, in turn, referred her to Apollo Hospital in the state capital. However, Kiran died on Thursday leaving the two girls.

On Friday, a case was lodged in Motihari in which Amitabh, his father, mother and sister were named accused. “I saw my father and grandmother burning my mother. My sister was also there,” Ayeshana reportedly told the police.
