Indian Girl Murdered By Family For Eloping

Indian Girl Murdered By Family For Eloping


The city of Gaya, Bihar State in India went into shock after the body of a 16 year old girl was found dismembered and mutilated. Police now say that her family were responsible for the killing, after they were angered when she eloped with a friend. She had been reported missing on 28th of December 2018.

Police say that the family of the teenage girl murdered her in what is known as a “honour” killing.

Discovered on Sunday, pictures of her badly mutilated body were shared on social media and many claimed that she had been burned using acid. This sparked protests in the city.

Bihar is one the poorest states in India and the grotesque murder can only be compared to the gang rape and murder of a female student over 6 years ago in Delhi. That murder sparked nationwide demonstrations.

While the family claimed that the girl had been raped and murdered, police disagreed saying their investigations showed foul play. After eloping, she had returned home after 3 days but the parents plotted the murder assisted by a butcher friend.

A post mortem conducted on the body showed that she was not raped. Furthermore, the parents had denied calls to appear at the police station to give a statement.

Traditions of the locals consider elopement a very serious breach of code.
