A teen girl has been hacked to death with an ax by her minor brother over her involvement with a boy he disliked.

The incident happened in Farrukhabad, a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, Tuesday. The police said that the 17-year-old boy has confessed to murdering his 15-year-old sister after she refused to end the relationship with the boy he detested, Times of India reported.

The teen boy whose name has not been revealed, given his age, told the police that he had repeatedly asked his sister to end her ties with the boy. The girl, however, refused to listen to his advice and continued her relationship.

On Tuesday, the brother got into an argument with the victim over the issue that reportedly ended up in the assault. During the argument, the brother asked the sister to meet him at the backside of the house and allegedly hacked her to death with an ax.

After the incident, the boy turned himself to the police, reported news outlet Times Now News. The police examined his documents and found out that he was a minor. The teenager is scheduled to appear before a juvenile board Wednesday.

AK Meena, the police superintendent said that the victim’s body has been sent for an autopsy, as per Times of India. The police have started an investigation and the case has been registered.
