The Indian man reportedly burned the alleged rapist's genitals with heated tongs before strangling him to death.

An enraged father reportedly called his daughter's alleged rapist over for dinner before torturing him to death in India.

The incident was reported from Northeast Delhi's Khajuri Khas area on Saturday.

Reports say that the father reportedly gave police a detailed account of how he tortured the man to death.

Based on the man's statement, police said the deceased, a medicine supplier, had allegedly raped the man's daughter two months ago.

According to the The Indian Express, the man's 14-year-old daughter was allegedly raped by the 45-year-old married man.

However, the father, 36, did not go to the police, fearing that his daughter will get "a bad name".

An officer said: "He called the medicine supplier over to his house, saying he wanted to discuss some issue. He served him dinner. After the meal, the father overpowered the man and tied him to a chair. He got heated tongs and burned the supplier's genitals before strangling him to death. He came to the police station and surrendered himself."

The officer added that they sent a team to the spot and recovered the body.

He said: "It has been sent for a post-mortem examination and his family has been informed. A case of murder has been registered and the 36-year-old man was arrested".

In his statement, the man told police that two months ago, while he was away at his shop in the area, the medicine supplier had come calling at his house.

On finding the girl alone at home, he allegedly raped her.

The man said that the medicine supplier threatened the girl with dire consequences if she spoke about the incident to anyone.

Police said the girl, however, told her father about the alleged rape on the same day.

The man also revealed that he had not approached the police earlier as he feared that neighbours and relatives would blame his daughter for the incident.

The police added that the distraught father had been planning the murder since the day he found out about his daughter's alleged rape.

He further told police that he used to get furious whenever he saw the man happy with his family while his daughter was suffering.
