“The accused revealed that her daughter had eloped with a youth belonging to another community. Therefore, he was infuriated over her,” Tiwari said.

As her eight-month-old son died because of illness, her elder sister contacted her father and sought help. On getting information, the father along with his son reached and asked the woman to accompany them to a forest area to perfume the last rite of the dead infant.

While the woman's brother was standing on the road, she along with her father went to the forest.
