As per reports, the minor girl’s boyfriend came over to her house on Tuesday afternoon when the girl’s parents were not at home. After the little boy walked in on the couple, the boyfriend strangled him to death to keep the relationship a secret.

After the incident, the girl started feeling depressed and guilty. She confronted her parents and told them the truth. Subsequently the father approached the police and filed a complaint.
While the girl has been detained by the police, her boyfriend is absconding.
