Upset with her married daughter over her alleged live-in relationship with a man, the mother allegedly killed her to “save the dignity of family”.

Police said the incident took place at Rawji Bazar area of Indore on Saturday.

The 21-year-old Gulabasha was brutally beaten by her mother, brother and maternal uncle to death, said the police, adding all the three accused have been arrested.

The murder would have gone unnoticed had the accused not tried to befool their relatives by informing them that the girl died of illness and the burial would have to be done at night only.

When the relatives visited the burial ground late on Saturday, some of them noticed injury marks on the victim’s body . One of the suspicious relatives called the police. During interrogation, the mother confessed to have killed her daughter for honour.
