Mangilal developed physical relations with the 19-year -old girl, Maya, following which she became pregnant. On getting to know about this, her family put pressure on Mangilal to marry Maya.

However, Mangilal, who has three children, refused and then hatched a plan of get rid of Maya, they said.

On December 18, he called her near Manpur area on the pretext of discussing marriage. He strangled Maya with a piece of cloth and threw her body in a lake to make it look like a case of suicide, the sources said.
