The girl was reportedly asked by her relatives to compulsorily offer Namaz every Friday. The relatives reportedly became furious as the girl disobeyed to offer Namaz last Friday. One of the aunts reportedly strangled the girl with a dupatta in a fit of anger.
According to reports, the relatives of the girl took her body to the Sion Hospital and to cover up the crime, told the doctors there that she had died after slipping in the bathroom. But one of the doctors noticed some marks on her neck and alerted the authorities. Upon interrogation by the police, the relatives reportedly admitted to committing the crime.
