Solan, March 6
Kala Amb Police arrested a 21-year-old security guard for killing a 19-year-old girl whose body was found hidden under stones in a forest area near Andheri village of Sirmaur district on March 3 .
The young man, who was hired as a security guard in a company, had killed the girl for her “one-sided love”. The girl was engaged to another person. The incident happened when she was home alone on February 20 as her parents left for Haryana.
He went to her house and tried to persuade her to accept his proposal, but her refusal reportedly led to a fight. In a fit of anger, he pushed her due to which her head hit a wall. He then allegedly gagged her mouth, following which she died of asphyxiation.
He put her body in a bag and carried her about 700m into a forest, where he threw her and covered her face with stones. Both belong to poor families and there were barely three houses around.
The girl’s family had reported her missing on February 20. The police had launched a search and his body was found on March 3.
Additional SP, Sirmaur, Babita Rana said the accused was previously detained for questioning. Scratches were visible on his chest that had occurred during the fight with the girl. He was arrested last night.
