An 18-year-old girl was allegedly shot dead by her brother in Uttar Pradesh's Ambedkar Nagar district, after he caught her talking to her lover over a cell phone.

The brother, identified as Vikas Singh, however, was arrested by pure chance. Vikas was a suspect in another murder case, and during the investigation, he confessed to having killed his sister with the help of an accomplice.

According to police sources, Vikas, a resident of Jehangirganj area in the district, buried the body near his house.

The police recovered the body on Monday, the sources said, adding that the body has been sent for postmortem.

Sources said the victim had been having an affair with a youth for the past few years. She had eloped with him two months ago and had returned home just a few days back.

She then told family members that the affair was over and that there would be no relationship with the youth anymore.

On Saturday, Vikas caught her talking to the boy again. In a fit of rage, he fired at her with a country-made pistol, killing her on the spot.

He buried the body a few hundred metres away from his house.

A hunt has been launched to nab the accomplice.
