Parental objection has led to the death of a young couple from Agra. A father, incensed with the fact that his daughter was chatting for long hours with her boyfriend on messaging app WhatsApp, murdered both of them.

Giriraj, a resident of Nagla-Laljeet situated on the Agra-Gwalior highway was taken in custody for allegedly killing his daughter and her lover over their affair.

During investigations, the police found that the couple was in a relationship, which Giriraj was opposed to. However, the couple chose to continue their affair and would chat for several hours a day on WhatsApp. This irritated Giriraj, who was on the lookout for a suitable groom for Bharti.

Even though a CCTV from a toll plaza on the Agra-Gwalior highway had captured Giriraj's image, he claimed he had never visited Dholpur in the recent past.
