Police on Tuesday arrested a 21-year-old woman in Ghaziabad who killed her mother as she objected to her lesbian relationship with her teacher.

On March 9, Rashmi Rana’s father Satish Kumar lodged an FIR at Kavi Nagar police station against his daughter and her teacher Nisha Gautama for battering his wife Pushpa Devi with an iron rod which later caused her death.

Police arrested Rana and Gautama from Ghaziabad railway station on Tuesday. During interrogation, Rana confessed that her mother opposed the union and constantly tortured her over it.

“Fed up with the objections, Rana and her teacher killed Pushpa Devi by battering her with an iron rod who died due to serious head injuries,” said superintendent of police (city) Akash Tomar.

Devi’s husband, Satish, was not in the house during the incident.

“The duo has been sent to jail,” said Tomar.
