Man climbs atop mobile tower with 4-yr-old daughter, persuaded to come down, arrested | Bareilly News


Bareilly: After a heated argument with his wife, a 40-year-old man stormed out of his house, picked up his four-year-old daughter playing outside and headed straight to the nearby mobile tower. He climbed atop the tower along with his daughter and stood there, poised to jump down. Locals who spotted the man informed Rampur’s Tanda police. They rushed teams to the tower and began persuading the man to climb down and spare his daughter from harm.
The incident occurred in Nai Basti of Nawabpura area under Tanda police jurisdiction late on Friday. The man climbed the mobile tower located near Mekka mosque in the area.
Tanda police said it took police over two hours to persuade the man, identified as Aqeel, to climb down with his daughter. Investigation revealed that the man was apparently upset after an argument with his wife earlier in the day. An FIR was registered against Aqeel and he was later sent to jail, police added.
Talking with TOI, Madhav Singh Bisht, SHO of Tanda police station, said, “After much persuasion, the man was successfully convinced by police to come down along with his daughter.” He said that Aqeel took the step due to an ongoing family dispute and that he was disturbed by his wife’s alleged “love affair”. The child was handed over to her mother, the SHO added.
A case has been registered against Aqeel under IPC section 307 (attempt to murder) and 309 (attempt to commit suicide). The man has been arrested and further investigation is underway, said Bisht.
