Per reports, the 3-year-old girl, only identified as Rabiha, died after she was forced by her father to sit in boiling hot water for a reason she was too young to have any control over. Her father allegedly forced the girl to sit in a bathtub filled with boiling hot water because the little girl was experiencing something she couldn’t control.
Identified as Rabiha, the little girl was allegedly hit with a rope by her father after he went into a fit of rage. The parent then forced the child to sit in boiling hot water for more than an hour before locking her up inside a room.
His story was that Rabiha walked into the kitchen and spilled the hot water on herself. However, authorities in Libya eventually found reason to believe that Rabiha’s father was allegedly behind his daughter’s death. The Criminal Investigation Department spoke to both the mother and father, and they admitted to the crime when presented with evidence, according to The Sun.
At the moment, it is unclear whether the mother was also involved in the events that led to Rabiha’s death. Both parents have not yet been charged but were transferred to the public prosecutor’s office. Investigators also found that the father had a drug addiction.
Rabiha’s story sparked massive outrage among residents of the country and many pushed for the death penalty to be handed over to the little girl’s father.
