15-Year-Old Girl Murdered By Mother, Brother in Delhi; as they Didn’t

The girl was living in Ghaziabad with her widowed mother and older brother. The 42-year-old mother and the 17-year-old brother have been accused of murdering the girl and attempting to dispose of her body afterwards.

According to the Hindustan Times, locals in the area spotted the mother and son late one afternoon, trying to leave on a scooty with a big plastic bag. They became suspicious on seeing a pair of legs inside the bag. The locals stopped them and emptied the contents of the bag to horrifyingly find the girl’s body inside.

On seeing this, the police were immediately informed and a case has been registered against the accused. According to the police, the family had moved in the locality only three days earlier and people nearby had heard the mother-daughter get into a heated argument at 1.30 pm that same afternoon she was killed.

Neeraj Kumar Jadaun, superintendent of police (rural), said, “During inveatigation, the woman told that she changed eight to nine rented houses in the last three months. She said that her daughter had a boyfriend, who would visit her often. Her mother objected to this and would move house frequently. This probably led to a fight and the girl was strangled.”

The girl's body has been sent for post-mortem and further details are awaited.
