A TEENAGED girl died under mysterious circumstances and her family members cremated her without intimating the police in Mohanlalganj on Tuesday.
The cops came to know about the incident on Wednesday and arrested two of the girl’s brothers. The cops have also registered a case against the girl’s alleged lover.
The kin said that the girl had eloped with her lover and returned on June 12.
They told the police that she had committed suicide the same night. The family members did not inform the police and had cremated her the next day.
A constable Javed Ahmed of the local police station, who lodged the FIR, stated that Sunita (16) of Katkaha village was taken to her aunt’s place at Kutrawan village in Nigohan on June 5. The girl was taken there to force her for ending up the love affair with Arun Kumar of her village. However, on June 8, Sunita reportedly eloped with Arun from her aunt’s house.
While the family members returned to their village after failing to trace her, Sunita suddenly returned home in the evening on June 12. The constable stated that the family members allegedly harassed the girl for the act and said that she would be married elsewhere soon.
Javed stated that the accused arrested in the case had claimed that the girl had hanged herself to death the same night. Instead of intimating the local police about the girl’s death, latter’s cousin Ashok Kumar alias Dadda of Karora village, Nagram cremated the body with the help of deceased’s brother Sujit on Tuesday noon.
It was on Wednesday morning that the constable came to know about the sequence of events from the villagers. He got a case registered against girl’s beloved Arun for creating circumstances for the girl to take the extreme step.
The cop held girl’s brothers Ashok and Sujit responsible for concealing the facts about the death and cremating the body. Sujit and Ashok were arrested while Arun was reported absconding.
