A man in Bangladesh was arrested Sunday for killing his toddler daughter and chopping off her limbs following a dispute with his wife.

The accused, identified as 30-year-old Al Amin, left his home in Dhaka on Nov. 3 with his one-year-old daughter after a heated argument with his wife. He even beat up the woman, news daily the Dhaka Tribune reported.

When he did not return home for hours, the wife, who was not identified by the Tribune, filed a complaint against her husband and in-laws at a nearby police station.

Three days later, the body of the toddler was found with her limbs chopped off. It wasn’t clear where the mutilated body was found.

Following a search for the accused, Amin was traced and taken into custody Sunday.

"Al Amin was arrested on Sunday in Sirajpur, after we recovered a mutilated body of the deceased toddler, Meem Akhter, on Nov. 6," police officer Farhaduzzaman Bhuiyan told the Dhaka Tribune on Monday.

During interrogation, the man confessed to killing his daughter and mutilating her body.

He appeared in court Monday and was charged under the relevant sections of the Bangladeshi law. He remained in jail as of Monday evening.

An investigation into the incident was ongoing.

In a similar incident in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad last week, a woman killed her newborn son by throwing him from a third-floor apartment following a feud with her husband.

On Oct. 29, the woman, identified as 27-year-old Lavanya, consumed poison in an attempt to kill herself. She survived as her parents managed to get her to a hospital on time and the following day, the woman gave birth to the boy.

On Nov. 13, the woman threw the newborn from the apartment, resulting in the boy's death. A case of murder was filed against her.

In another incident last year, a man in Kenya killed his toddler daughter following an argument with his wife over her social media obsession. The woman left home following the disagreement and when she returned home a few days later, she found her two-year-old daughter’s body in the bedroom with a piece of cloth tied to the toddler’s neck.
