The UP Police arrested a 55-year-old man and his 25-year-old son for allegedly killing his young daughter and her boyfriend of the same caste in Gonda district.
The case came to the fore when the boy's mother Prabhavati Chaurasia lodged a complaint that her son Satish Kumar Chaurasia (20), a farmer, did not return home based on which a missing person complaint was registered.
While the police began searching for Satish Chaurasia they found out about his relationship with Aarti Chaurasia (19) his neighbour.
The police then found that Arti had died and her family conducted her last rites very next day without informing anyone in the village.
The police detained her father Kripa Ram Chaurasia and her elder brother Raghav Ram Chaurasia, both farmers, who confessed to having murdered the youth over the relationship and disposed of his body in a field outside their village. After killing the girl, they buried the body at a cremation ground in Ayodhya.
A team of Gonda police visited Ayodhya to exhume the woman’s body, police added. The police have sent the remains for a post mortem and other procedures.
The police have booked the accused for double murder and other charges under the Indian Penal Code.
