A man in Tamil Nadu, India, has allegedly killed his 19-year-old granddaughter for refusing to break up with her boyfriend, Tamil Nesan reported.
The teenage college student was dating the man, who had graduated from the same college.
On Aug 15, she apparently took a bus to a neighbouring city to stay with her boyfriend instead of returning home after college.
Her family, who got worried when she did not come home after classes, lodged a police report.
She was eventually found by policemen in Dindigul and returned to the family.
On Tuesday, her parents, who were busy in their farm, heard someone screaming in their backyard.
When they rushed over, they were shocked to see their daughter lying in a pool of blood with her throat slit and the grandfather standing next to her with a bloodied knife.
The father attempted to apprehend the grandfather but he managed to escape. Police arrested the suspect later that day.
