Even before the national capital could get out of the shivering shocks of Shraddha murder case, another gruesome killing of a 22-year-old girl allegedly by her parents for not complying with their choice made the city look again for its lost conscience.  

As the police couldn’t identify the body, they started tracing phones, examined CCTV footage and checked social media to get any clue. They also had pasted posters across the city to identify the woman. Police finally arrested father of the girl on Monday.
