Lucknow, February 3: A man was arrested recently for allegedly killing his girlfriend in Lucknow district of Uttar Pradesh. The accused, identified as Brijesh Mourya from Kakori, allegedly murdered his lover Sarita as she was forcing him for marriage. As per reports, Mourya thrashed Sarita, strangled her to death with a scarf. He later dragged her body for about 100 metres and left it hanging near a pond.

On January 31, Sarita was found hanging near a pond. The police reached the spot and sent her body for post-mortem. During preliminary investigation, the cops came to know that she was having an affair with Brijesh Mourya. To get more details, they detained Mourya who initially had denied having any information. However, he later confessed to killing Sarita, reports said.

During interrogation, Mourya said that Sarita had been pressurising him to marry her. She was threatening to implicate him in rape case if he did not marry her, he alleged. In order to get rid of her, Mourya asked Sarita to meet him on the night of January 30. When Sarita arrived, he allegedly assaulted her and tightened a scarf around her neck. When Sarita stopped moving, Mourya dragged her for nearly 100 metres and hanged her near a pond.
