Indore/Mhow : In a horrific incident, a minor boy reportedly killed his 16-year-old sister on November 2 following an altercation between them in Simrol area, police said on Saturday. Police said that the girl used to have telephonic conversations with a boy, a fact not liked by her brother and he strangled her to death. Police have booked her father in connection with the crime as he tried to mislead the police by saying that his daughter had committed suicide by hanging herself.
