In what seemed like yet another case of honour killing, a man near New Delhi killed his teenaged daughter for wishing to marry a boy from their same village and then surrendered before police.

Media reports said on Saturday that Brajesh Singh of Sonipat killed his daughter, studying in 12th standard, by strangulating her with her dupatta.

She had fallen in love with a boy of her village.

The man told police he killed his daughter because all efforts to dissuade her from terminating the relationship had failed.
