Sonepat, Mar 1: The Haryana Police has arrested a 17-year-old girl for allegedly shooting her ex-boyfriend dead on February 21 in Sonepat’s Matindu village. The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Deepak Kumar.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, Deepak’s body was found at an agricultural field owned by his family. He was found lying in a pool of blood by his father on February 21.

Initially, the police had booked the girl’s father and brothers for the murder as Deepak’s father had lodged a complaint of honour killing against them. However, the police found out the reality after a week when the police found pieces of bangles at the murder spot.

The girl confessed to the crime during interrogation. She has been sent to a juvenile jail.

In her statement to the police, she told that her family had fixed her marriage whereas, the boy was pressurising her to elope. He had even threatened her to kill her family if she refuses to do so.
