Muslim slits his 15-year-old daughter’s throat with a meat cleaver and dumps her body on her boyfriend’s doorstep

An Indian father slit his daughter’s throat with a meat cleaver and dumped her body on her boyfriend’s doorstep in a suspected honour killing, police said today.

The father is accused of knifing his 15-year-old daughter when she started dating a teenager he did not approve of in the Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh state.

The boyfriend allegedly sneaked into the girl’s house early on Tuesday but was caught by her mother and handed over to police, police officer Shivraj Singh said.

Both their Muslim families had disapproved of the relationship because the teenagers came from the same caste.
