A 16-year-old girl was arrested in Haryana for allegedly murdering her mother after she objected to her relationship with an older man from a different caste, police said.
The girl, her boyfriend Surinder, and another man Rinku killed 40-year-old Sheela on October 25 and buried her body near a drain in Sonipat.
During interrogation, the girl told the police that she mixed sleeping pills in the milk to make her mother unconscious and took her to a drain, where the trio strangulated Sheela and buried her.
Within 10 days of the incident, the girl married Surinder and started living in the same area. However, the girl’s maternal uncle filed a police compliant after he found his sister missing. Police recovered Sheela’s body on Wednesday.
