Banda: A 17-year-old girl was allegedly axed to death by a brother-in-law of her elder sister in the Atrara area in Banda on Saturday evening, police said.

Police are suspecting rape and murder.

Circle Officer Satyaprakash Sharma said the deceased was a resident of Madhya Pradesh and had come to her elder sister's place.

"On Saturday around 6 pm, the brother-in-law of her elder sister killed her using an axe and then fled. At the time of the incident, the accused and the girl were alone in the house," Sharma said, adding that a case has been registered against the accused.

He said teams have been formed to nab the accused who is absconding while the body of the deceased has been sent for a post-mortem examination.

The officer said prima facie it seems that the girl was raped and then murdered but nothing could be said officially before the post-mortem report arrives.
