Father, brother arrested for killing girl, her friend
Mandla: Three persons, including the father and brother of a girl, were arrested for allegedly strangulating her to death along with her male friend, police said on Wednesday.
The bodies of a 19-year-old girl and her friend Sunil Maravi (21), both residents of Majhipura village in the district, were recovered on the intervening night of July 15 and 16 in the village, they said.
The duo had known each other for some years but the girl got married to another youth last year.
