Man kills daughter over love affair

A man strangled his minor daughter as she was in love with a ‘lower-caste’ boy in Kamatmpalli of Srinivaspur taluk on Sunday.

According to police, Reddy Priya (17) was studying in a private college in Srinivaspur and was courting Harish, who works at APMC yard in the town, for the past one year. The parents of Priya came to know of her affair and they had advised her to distance herself from the boy. Priya’s parents had also asked Harish to stay away from their daughter. However, the couple did not relent, Gownipalli police said.

On Sunday evening, Byra Reddy, the father of Priya, took her out from the house forcibly saying that they would go to the house of a relative. He took Priya to a nearby farm land and strangled her with a plastic wire. Reddy returned to his house and informed his wife, brothers and some friends in the village about the murder committed by him. He was also making preparations to cremate the body on the spot. But, some villagers alerted the police and who came to the house of Reddy for questioning.

Police said that during interrogation, the Reddy and his family members confessed to the crime.
