The father and uncle of a 19-year-old girl, who was allegedly tortured and electrocuted to death along with her boyfriend in a case of honour killing in the capital on Monday, have been arrested, police said today.

Suresh Kumar Saini and Om Prakash, father and uncle respectively of the victim Asha Saini, were arrested for
allegedly committing the gruesome murder, they said.

Asha and Yogesh Kumar had been found murdered at her uncle's residence on street number-3 of Swaroop Nagar area
on Monday morning and the girl's uncle Prakash and other members of her family were untraceable after the incident.

"Saini and Prakash have confessed to the crime," a senior police officer claimed.

Asha allegedly had an affair with Yogesh and wanted to marry him but her family was vehemently against the match as
the boy belonged to a different caste.

Her family members had even fixed her marriage with somebody else, he added.
