A woman reportedly murdered her three-year-old daughter following an argument with her husband in Nagpur city, Maharashtra. Afterward, she walked about 4 km with the body before eventually notifying the police about the incident, officials said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred on Monday evening within the MIDC police station limits, officials said. Twinkle Raut (23), the accused, and her husband Rama Laxman Raut (24) moved to Nagpur four years ago in search of employment.

An official said they worked at a paper products company and lived in a room within the firm’s premises on Hingna Road in the MIDC area. The police said their relationship was characterized by frequent quarrels arising from mutual distrust.
