A dad rescued his own teenage daughter after she was buried alive for two hours over an alleged property dispute.

property disputeDramatic video footage captures the moment Khushboo Khatun, 19, was found buried deep in the soill.

Villagers can be heard shouting in desperation as they dig frantically and she is pulled out of the rubble.

The young woman from Govindpur village, in Bihar, eastern India, was on her way home from the market on Sunday when three men allegedly pounced on her and threw her into a 3ft deep pit before they filled it with earth and left her.

When Kushboo didn’t make it home, her father Muhammad Azim Ansari, 43, and mother Sanjana Khatun, 40, began to worry and started looking for her.

Eventually, Ansari noticed the nearby pit was randomly filled with earth and suspected something may be wrong.

He quickly started digging and called on other villagers to help, before they came across Khushboo in a semi-conscious state.

She had been buried for two full hours and was almost suffocating.

Villagers were throwing water on her in a bid to clean off the soil but Kushboo could barely hold herself upright, as men continued to dig in an attempt to get her free.

She was eventually rushed to a nearby local government hospital suffering with shock.

The police were informed and officers are currently searching for suspects, Amit Shah, who is a local business man, and two accomplices.

Superintendent Nawal Kishore Singh, from Samastipur Police Station, said Amit Shah had wanted to use land owned by Ansari for construction.

As Ansari was not willing to co-operate, Amit used his daughter as a threat.

Superintendent Nawal Kishore Singh added: “It is a property dispute. It’s been going on for several years.

“Amit Shah wants to use the land owned by Ansari. But Ansari uses the area himself for small construction. Amit has threatened Ansari many times in the past.

“Amit, along with two others, attacked a member of Ansari’s family as a warning.

A First Information Report (a document containing allegations of offences) has been registered against the three suspects.

They include tvoluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means; punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt; assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty.

The three are currently on the run but the police have deployed officers to catch them.

Kushboo was discharged from hospital the following day and is now recovering at home.

In the video footage, she says: “They threw me in the pit, tried to bury me alive, so that they could kill me.”
