    Pratapgarh (Uttar Pradesh) : Police arrested parents of a 20-year-old for allegedly axing her to death after they found her pregnant out of wedlock.

    The body of the unidentified young woman was found on the railway tracks near Alapur in Pratapgarh district on October 25, said Nawabganj Station House Officer (SHO) Akhilesh Pratap Singh.

    The father of the deceased Kamlesh Kumar Yadav, a resident of Kishundaspur village, identified the body. He alleged his daughter had been murdered and lodged a complaint against an unidentified killer.

    An FIR was registered at the Nawabganj police station. Investigations, however, revealed that the woman was pregnant at the time of her death.

    Kumar Yadav and his wife Anita Devi were called in for questioning on Friday, the SHO said. On October 24, the parents had taken their daughter, who was unwell, for an ultrasound test on the advice of a doctor.

    The test revealed the daughter was six-month pregnant. They tried to find a doctor for getting an abortion done but could not succeed.

    They tried to glean the identity of the man she had been in relationship but she refused to divulge his name.

    The parents then took her to the railway tracks in the night near Alapur and murdered her. They threw the body on the tracks to pass it off as an accident or suicide.

    The SHO said the axe used has also been recovered and the couple were sent to jail on Saturday
