Muzaffarnagar: A month after a girl was found dead, police has claimed to crack the case by arresting her father for killing her for `honour` in Nasirpur village here.

21-year-old Meenakshi was in a relationship with a boy of the same village and wanted to marry him, but her father Surajmal was against it, said SSP Manjil Saini.

Following a heated argument on March 17, 2013, Surajmal shot dead his daughter.

During the interrogation held yesterday, Surajmal confessed to have killed Meenakshi for tarnishing the family`s name, she said.

He has been arrested in connection with the case.
