New Delhi, June 16: Unhappy with her relationship with a boy, two brothers killed their own sister and burnt her body in the house to erase evidence in Rajkot district of Gujarat.
The incident took place around twenty days ago but came to light after police got inputs about the murder of Bishubhai’s daughter by her family members.
25-year-old Poonam was staying at her father’s house post-divorce. After further investigation, it was revealed that she was forcefully abducted in a car by her own brothers Rajbir and Biren. They took her to an agricultural land in Jasdan, around 60 kms away from Rajkot. They killed her by giving her poison in the farm.
They then took her body to their ancestral village and performed last rites in their house. No one from the family reported this incident to the police.
Police have now arrested her brothers and launched a manhunt against their three associates who helped them in the crime.
According to police, the duo was suspicious of their divorced sister’s love affair with someone and therefore they killed her for the “reputation” of their family.
