A day after 21-year-old daughter of an assistant sub-inspector of police was found dead with burn injuries, police said they suspected it to be a case of honour killing and were probing it from all angles.
Neha Jindal was found dead in a police quarter inside the Sarai Rohila police station Tuesday evening. The quarter is allotted to her mother Vimla, posted with the president's security. Her father Shyam Jindal, who runs a grocery store, found her body.
"We are investigating the matter from all possible angles including honour killing and suicide. We are waiting for the post-mortem examination and then would launch investigations," a police officer said.
Police said Neha reportedly had an affair with a boy and her parents were opposed to it.
Some half-burnt papers were also recovered near her body.
"We can't say whether it is a suicide note. We have sent all these papers for forensic examination," the officer said.
