Man murders daughter, 'dishonour killing' suspected
Sangrur: In a suspected case of 'dishonour killing', a man allegedly poisoned his young daughter, infuriated over illicit relations with a neighbour in a village near here, police said.

The deceased has been identified as Bhupinder Kaur (21).

After coming to know of her daughter's relations with Karamjit Singh, her father Major Singh, with the help of his brother Hardev Singh, poisoned her to death at village Rajomajra under Dhuri police station on December 29, they said.

A village watchman reported the matter to police on December 30, when he found the accused cremating Bhupinder at a cremation ground, failing to give a satisfactory reason for her death, they said.

Sangrur SSP Harcharan Singh Bhullar then constituted a special investigating team and found the death of Bhupinder as dishonour killing, police said, adding both the accused have been arrested.

They have confessed to the murder of Bhupinder and a case has been registered against them.
