The father and brother of a girl who was found murdered in a case of honour killing in February this year in Silhonia village, have been arrested, police said on Saturday.

Father Raghubir Singh and brother Bhoora Singh were arrested on Friday and search was on to trace two uncles and a cousin of the girl who was killed.

The uncles and the cousin are also said to be involved in the murder. Soon after the girl was killed, her mother, Usha Devi had been arrested but other family members had escaped the police net.

The girl had been killed as she was in love with a boy in her village and her family objected to this.
