Mumbai, Nov 5 IBNS | 1 year ago

A 17-year-old girl from Uttar Pradesh has allegedly been raped and then killed on the outskirts of Mumbai by her father and his friend, media reports said.


Both the accused have been arrested.

According to reports, the teen eloped from her village in Ghazipur in Eastern Uttar Pradesh with her boyfriend two months ago.

The police said that her father then travelled to Mumbai and tried to persuade his daughter to return home.

When he failed to do so, he allegedly took her to a forested area and raped her along with his friend.

The two then strangled her to death.

Police Sub-Inspector Vilas Mate told NDTV, "They took her to the jungle and tried to strangle her. She survived that but then he tore her dupatta, looped it around her neck and killed her."
