A man has been accused of brutally killing his daughter after she failed to serve him food on time in Babugarh, Hapur district, Uttar Pradesh, India.

The accused, identified as 55-year-old Mohd Fariyad, a father of six, reportedly felt angry with his 22-year-old daughter Reshma after there was a delay in her serving him his meal. Upset over this, Fariyad started yelling at the victim, the Times Of India reported.
