throat of his teenage daughter after she had eloped with a Dalit
youth. The incident took place under Charthawal police station area of
Muzaffarnagar district on Wednesday.

Abdul Sattar has surrendered and confessed to his crime to the police
after the girl's body was found.

Muzaffarnagar SSP Praveen Kumar said some people informed the police
about the body of a girl lying at a secluded place behind an unused
room at a municipal building.

"Someone identified the body as that of Gulshana (19) and said that
her family resides about 500 metres from the spot," Kumar said.

During questioning, Sattar admitted that he had killed Gulshana when
she was asleep at night and dumped the body at that spot. He also said
