The couple, who considered their daughter’s action as a dishonour to the family, had, on 14 March, declared their daughter missing to Kotli City Police authorities, according to a BBC report.
But, the discovery of her chopped off body and dismembered head by villagers gave the killer parent away.
Investigation later revealed the parent had partaken in “honour killing’ of their daughter on 6 March to preserve the family’s integrity.
They dumped her body parts in the Poonch river, where villagers found them and alerted the police.
The parents confessed to the Police it was the reason they had chopped off the deceased’s body with an axe.
