A 45-year-old father of Mamponteng in Ashanti is on trial for allegedly beating his daughter to death.

Haruna Bismawu had allegedly accused his eldest child, Habiba Bismawu, 20, of sleeping around with men.

His warning to her to desist from her immoral lifestyle had gone unheeded. When she returned home early on Monday after spending the night outside the home on Sunday, he was especially concerned because it was Ramadan when Muslims, by virtue of their religion, are obliged to stay pure.

Haruna reportedly grabbed Habiba and subjected her to severe beating.

She was said to have died on the way to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital and was buried on the same day.

Haruna allegedly attempted to run away but was arrested by the Community Police.

Police Inspector Yusif Mohammed Tanko of the Ashanti Regional Police Public Affairs Unit told the Times that Haruna was put before the Mamponteng Magistrates Court on Monday charged with murder.

His plea was not taken and he was remanded into prisons custody to appear again on October 22.
