Meerut: Two brothers allegedly strangulated
to death their mother and sister, whom they suspected to be
involved in an illicit relationship, police said today.

Rizwan, a relative, lodged a complaint with the police
last month that the two women members of the family were
missing, police said.

According to police, the two accused, Shadab and Meraz,
strangulated to death their mother and married sister Gulnaz
and dumped their bodies in a canal.

The duo suspected that Gulnaz, who was staying with them,
was involved in an illicit relationship. They were also
incensed at their mother for not stopping her, they said.

Police claimed that the two brothers have confessed to
the crime.
