Karimnagar: The police in Telangana's Karimnagar district arrested a couple on Monday for allegedly killing their mentally ill daughter. Rajanna Sircilla Superintendent of Police Akhil Mahajan said that Chepyala Narsaiah (49) and his wife Yellavva (43) from Nerella allegedly killed their daughter Priyanka (24) and falsely claimed it was a natural death.

The woman had been suffering from a mental disorder for several years. Despite her condition, her parents sought treatment for her and arranged her marriage. She also had a 13-month-old son.

Parents strangled her to death

Due to the recurrence of mental sickness, the woman was given treatment again and taken to a place of worship, but of no use.

Frustrated with the lack of improvement in their daughter's condition, the parents decided to take drastic action. They allegedly strangled her with a rope while she was asleep at their house on May 14, the police official said.

The parents informed their son-in-law about the death and proceeded with the funeral the next day. However, suspicions arose among the villagers regarding the circumstances of the woman's death, prompting them to file a complaint with the police. During the investigation, the couple confessed to the crime. 

The couple was remanded to judicial custody, Mahajan said, adding, further investigation is underway.
