The body of a 17-year-old girl from Uttar Pradesh's Deoria district hung off a bridge for hours between Monday evening and Tuesday night, after she was allegedly murdered, and the body was thrown off the bridge by the girl's grandfather and two uncles. While the police have not said on record why the girl was killed, an aunt of the girl said the accused had a problem with the girl's 'lifestyle'.

Reports says the girl and her mother had recently come to live at the home of their in-laws in Deoria . The girl's father is a migrant worker in Punjab.

"These people always had a problem with the lifestyle of the girl and her family. They were jealous of what their family ate, what they wore. They assaulted the girl with a rod. When she became seriously injured, they told her mother they were taking the girl to the hospital but instead they dumped her off the bridge on the way to the hospital," an aunt of the girl told reporters.

"The girl had an argument with her grandfather and abused him. 2-3 uncles of the girl then assaulted her, and she fell unconscious. The relatives were then taking her to hospital, but she died on the way. They tried to dump the body, but it got stuck on the river bridge, Mr Mishra said.

Superintendent of Police, Sripati Mishra, said that the body has been sent for post mortem and an FIR has been filed. As per the report, the grandfather of the girl has been arrested while the accused uncles are still on the run.
