Brothers kill sister, file missing complaint 

On March 8, her brothers, Sartaj and Shahrukh, filed an FIR at the Ecotech 3 police station, claiming their sister was missing.

After the unidentified body was recovered from the river, the brothers were called to identify if the deceased was their sister.

“The brothers agreed that it was indeed the body of their sister and then the body was sent for post-mortem, which revealed that she had died of strangulation some five days earlier,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central Noida) Ram Badan Singh said.

Killed to protect family honour

According to the police, when the investigation was launched, they suspected the role of the brothers, who confessed to the crime during questioning.

“During interrogation, the two brothers confessed that they had killed Nazma on the night of March 8 and later dumped her body in the river near the Chaar Murti Chowk,” the DCP claimed.

The brothers reportedly admitted to murdering their sister and dumping her body in the river allegedly to “protect the honour” of their family.

The duo then filed a missing complaint to mislead the police. 

Shahrukh and Sartaj had come to know that their sister, who had a disturbed marital life, was having multiple illicit relationships and had also turned alcoholic, the police said.

Upset over failed marriage, drinking habits 

DCP Singh said the woman was strangled to death and her body dumped in the Hindon river.

The brothers revealed that their sister Nazma had been married to Sajid, a resident of the Masuri area in Ghaziabad, in 2012.

“Najma and Sajid used to live in Surajpur but for the last one year, they had been living separately and Sajid had shifted to Masuri in Ghaziabad where he worked as a scrap dealer. Najma’s family had been upset over her failed marriage, drinking habit and also doubted her character,” he said, citing the brothers’ confession. 


The duo was arrested on Monday by the police under Indian Penal Code section 302 (murder) and were produced in a local court which has remanded them in judicial custody, Singh said.
