Father, step-mother held for minor girl’s murder in Sultanpur Lodhi

Sultanpur Lodhi police on Tuesday arrested the father and step-mother of a 15-year-old girl for murdering her by feeding poison in Dalla village here on June 26.

The accused have been identified as Saroop Singh and his wife Mandeep Kaur. The police have also named a relative Amandeep Kaur of the same village in the FIR for reportedly assisting the couple in executing the crime. However, she is yet to be arrested.

Sultanpur Lodhi deputy superintendent of police Sarwan Singh said a case was registered on Monday on the basis of a complaint filed by deceased’s uncle Gurbaz Singh and the autopsy report.“The couple had been torturing the girl for the past several years and she was in depression.
