The death of a girl whose body was found by the railway police on June 21 appears to be a case of honour killing, as her parents are missing mysteriously since then.

After the body of Ritu Paswan was found, the investigation revealed that she was daughter of Ram Preet Paswan and a resident of Isha Nagar in Patna. The family was presently putting up in Jammu. Her father is an employee with the Food Corporation of India. Police sources claimed that Ritu had an affair with Raju, a labourer from Bihar, who was living in the nearby slums.

Despite her parents' objection, the girl did not listen to them. The alleged involvement of Ritu's parents in her death seems certain as they are away since June 21, when she was found dead. The railway police have established a contact with their counterparts in Patna and a police party has left for the Bihar capital.
