Thane: In a shocking incident in Thane's Mumbra, a 17-year-old girl from Mumbra and her boyfriend allegedly killed her mother after she objected to their friendship. The incident took place on Wednesday, December 28.

The minor girl and her 39-year-old mother were staying on the fourth story of Mumbra's Fatima Heights. In this instance, a murder case has been reported to the Mumbra police.

Ashok Kadlag, senior police inspector of Mumbra police station said, " The teenage girl was annoyed after her 37-year-old mother reprimanded her over her friendship with the boy.

As per the preliminary information the murder took place out of the same anger. After murdering the girl and her boyfriend ran away from the spot.The deceased mother's name is Saba Mehndi Hashmi."

The duo then fled from the spot after locking the house from outside, Mumbra police station's senior inspector Ashok Kadlag said.

The relative then called the girl, but as there was no response from her they became suspicious and rushed to Saba's residence. The house was locked from the outside and as the phone was ringing from inside the house, the relatives became suspicious and broke the lock and entered the house. When they opened the door they found that Saba was lying dead on the ground in a pool of blood and then the murder came to light. As per the relatives Saba was stabbed on her neck and chest by a sharp knife."

"Soon after receiving the  information about this incident our police team rushed to the spot. We sent the body for postmortem at the government hospital and registered a case of murder under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 304 and 34.
