A 17-year-old girl reportedly killed both her parents with the help of her lover after her father and mother objected to her getting married to her boyfriend in Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh, India.

The girl's 44-year-old father was found dead in his house in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh on March 6. However, since the girl's mother had also died under similar circumstances two months before the murder on Jan. 15, the girl's cousin reportedly felt suspicious regarding the consistent deaths in the family and notified the authorities.

Following this, the father's remains were sent for an autopsy. The postmortem examination revealed that his death was caused by strangulation and that his bloodwork shows signs of intoxication, the Times Of India reported.

After the police led an investigation into the incident, it revealed that the girl had administered sleeping pills to her father, after which she, with the help of her 20-year-old lover, strangled him to death. When the officers further questioned her, the suspect confessed to murdering her mother two months ago as well.

According to authorities, the two accused committed the murders because the girl's family objected to their relationship as they belonged to different castes.

Following the gruesome discovery, the officers arrested the accused couple. The girl was taken to a juvenile home. Meanwhile, the boy was remanded to judicial custody.
