It was gathered that the little girl in a desperate bid tried to delay her parents’ separation by ripping the documents.
But her father reacted with fury and tied her up with rope around her neck and pulled her trousers down.
The man then filmed her as she dangled helplessly from the ceiling, and reportedly sent the footage to his future ex-wife.
The man has been arrested by the police operatives in Guangyuan City’s Jiange County, in south-western China Sichuan Province after the girl’s mum showed them the video clip.
The little girl was taken to hospital, but was not seriously injured as Police say she is receiving psychological counselling following the ordeal.
The mum is expected to be given custody of the girl, while investigations continue into the dad’s actions, which could see him charged with child abuse and jailed for over a year.
