The police is carrying out raids to nab three other accused- the girl's brother, his friend and a car driver in connection with the case.
Nidhi Barak, 20, and Dharmender Barak, 22, eloped and went to Delhi on Tuesday. Their families in the Gharnavati village did not approve of the relationship, since both belonged tothe same village.
They returned to the village after Nidhi's parents allegedly persuaded her to come back. They promised to cause no harm to the lovers.
"The girl was beaten to death in full public view. The boy was brutally beaten and his arms and legs broken, before he was beheaded. His headless body was allegedly dumped at a public square in the village," NDTV reported.
Nidhi was a student of fine arts, while Dharmender was pursuing a technical course.
"What happened was wrong, but if a father took such a big step there must be a reason," the girl's aunt was quoted as saying.
The Haryana Human Rights Commission has taken note of the killings and has asked for a report from the police.
