In a case of "honour" killing, a 17-year old girl was allegedly killed by her father over illicit relations at Chuhar Chak village in Moga district.

The police have arrested the girl's father and booked him on the charges of murder and destroying evidence. The girl was studying in Class XI and was missing since last night.

Her body was found floating in the village pond. Local divers fished out the body. The body has been sent to the district hospital for the post-mortem examination. Since there were no injury marks on the body, the exact cause of death is yet to be ascertained.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the father of the girl has confessed that he had killed his daughter because of her illicit relations with a local youth, a police officer said. After killing the daughter, he threw her body in the pond.
