A horrifying crime case was reported from Haryana on Tuesday. A 20-year-old girl named Divya was allegedly killed by her family members and cremated in the state’s Rohtak area where they lived.

Girl faced concerns in married life

It was noted that the girl married in February, but didn’t stay for a long time in the in-laws’ residence due to facing some differences with them.

She was reportedly in love with a man prior to her wedding, and the boyfriend attacked the husband leading to tensions in the girl’s marital life. According to reports, Divya was in touch with her lover even after marrying another man, who was purportedly the choice of her family.

Suicide vs murder

A week after marriage, she returned to her maternal place and noted to have a failed marriage. However, months from then in May, she was reported dead, some claiming it to be a suicide while others pointing fingers at the family.
