Maharashtra: Brother kills sister for being friendly with boys
A 17-year-old boy allegedly killed his 19-year-old sister as he was upset with her for being friendly with boys in their locality in Valiv town in Maharashtra's Palghar, police said today. Some neighbors had also taunted his family over the woman's conduct, Police Inspector Bharat Jadhav said. The boy had earlier reprimanded his sister and even beaten her over the issue, Jadhav said.
Boy was charged under IPC Section 302
Yesterday, when their parents went out for work, the boy allegedly strangled his sister to death with a 'dupatta', Jadhav said. The Valiv police had later nabbed the boy and registered a case against him under IPC Section 302 (murder), he said. The body was sent for postmortem, Jadhav said, adding that a probe was on into the incident.
