Badaun: A 19-year-old-girl and her lover were strangulated to death by the girl’s parents in Nandyal village of Uttar Pradesh on Friday night.

It is being suspected that this was an incident of honour killing. The parents lost their temper when they found their teenage daughter with a boy in an objectionable position, and strangulated the couple to death.

Further disclosing the matter, SSP of the district, Sunil Saxena, said, “Mausam Ali and his wife Harsimat Begum found their daughter in an objectionable position with her lover in her room last night, and in a fit of rage, the parents strangulated the couple to death.”
