Woman Kills Minor Pregnant Daughter For Family ‘honour’ In Chaubeypur | Kanpur News

Kanpur: In a suspected case of ‘honour killing’, a woman with the help of her son allegedly killed her minor daughter, who had become pregnant allegedly after having an affair with a local man from another caste at a village in Chaubeypur area of the district.
The incident which took place on Tuesday night, came to light on Friday following an autopsy report and police investigation.
The police have arrested the minor’s mother, her brother and her alleged lover.
The police said that initially the girl’s mother and brother tried to project the death as a suicide on Tuesday night. However, the police established their role in the murder and arrested them following postmortem report and thorough investigation into the case.
Disclosing the details on Friday, police station in charge Krishna Mohan Rai said the police arrested the woman and her son on Friday for allegedly killing the minor, as the latter had become pregnant after developing an affair with a neighbourhood man, who too has been arrested on charges of rape.
The accused mother confessed that as their honour was at stake, she strangled her daughter to death.
“Initially, they tried to convince the minor girl and asked her to end the relationship with the man, who was from another caste, but the girl refused to do so. However, recently, when the girl’s mother came to know about her pregnancy, she decided to eliminate her to protect their ‘honour’ in society. She along with her son strangled the minor to death with a ‘dupatta’ late Tuesday night. Moreover, they alerted the police and tried to project before the cops, the murder as suicide,” said Rai.
An intensive investigation was carried out by the police team, since they suspected the girl’s mother and her brother. The two were arrested after the police team collected sufficient evidence including the autopsy report. “The accused confessed to the crime before the police. All three including the minor’s alleged lover have been sent to jail on Friday,” he added.
