In an evident instance of honour killing, a 19-year-old young girl was allegedly killed by her mom and two siblings, when she became pregnant before marriage, in Ranga Reddy region on Thursday. The occurrence became exposed on Friday.
As indicated by the police, Manjula was the single girl of Soni and Devla Islavath. After the demise of Devla four years back, Soni and her three youngsters, Jagan, Babloo and Manjula, were staying in Veluguralla tanda in Kadthal mandal. Throughout the previous one month, Manjula had reported sick and had been taking treatment at a close-by facility.
When she did not recover, her mother got suspicious and took her to a diagnostic centre on Thursday, where reports confirmed that Manjula was pregnant, the police said.
“After returning home, Soni and her sons questioned Manjula about the pregnancy. Despite asking several times, when she did not answer, Jagan hit her on the head with a stick, due to which she fell down and died,” Amangallu inspector P. Ravindra Prasad said.
They poured pesticide from a container into her mouth and alert everybody that she had committed suicide. They wanted to cover the body at midnight and moved the body to the field with the assistance of Jagan’s brother-in-law Kiran, yet couldn’t do the burial and returned home. The body was buried on Thursday.
As bits of gossip spread, the police held a request and found that she was murdered by her mom and siblings. Manjula’s body was unearthed on Friday and a autopsy was conducted. Forensic experts said she passed on of a head damage and was four months pregnant. Based on a complaint from the village revenue officer, the police registered a case.
