An 18-year-old bludgeoned her mother to death on Sunday at their Ghaziabad residence. Her father lodged a complaint against her and her female teacher. He said that his daughter was in a relationship with the teacher and was planning to run away with her.

“My daughter attacked my wife with sticks and rods, which led to severe injuries to her head. My daughter fled the spot and my wife was bleeding heavily when my younger daughter arrived from school,” the victim’s husband said.

“My daughter wanted to run away with her female teacher. Both were in a relationship for over three months and we had objected to it. We had no altercation for any other reason.” 

 “Her teacher is separated from her husband and living alone. After attacking my wife, she (daughter) is absconding. I am sure she has gone to her teacher,” he added.

The girl’s sister found her mother injured and rushed her to the hospital.

Her father had said that he had discontinued his daughter’s studies because of the relationship.

“We have registered the FIR and searching for the young woman and her teacher. The family has alleged that the girl attacked her mother because of the relationship between the two women. It is a subject matter of investigation,” said Samarjeet Singh, station house officer at the Kavi Nagar police station.
