Delhi police head constable and his wife watch their daughter being murdered for family honor in Jhjjar's Surheti village. They have been accused of being involved in a conspiracy to kill their 20-year-old daughter.
The couple was reportedly upset that the girl, a nursing student, was having an affair with a boy from a neighbouring village.
According to the FIR, the victim's maternal uncle strangulated her in the presence of her parents. The father is an Army veteran who joined Delhi police after taking premature retirement.
The parents have been arrested, Jhajjar police said.
"On the intervening night of October 24 and 25, Vandana's maternal uncle and parents again asked her not to meet the boy in the future. When she refused to listen to them, the uncle allegedly strangulated her at around 1.30am," stated the FIR.
"During interrogation, they were crying and appeared remorseful. Both repeatedly said they tried to give everything to their daughter but she had gone out of their hands. The uncle, who was called by the family to persuade her to stay from the boy, perpetrated the crime in the presence of the parents", he said.
