A man allegedly strangled his niece to death and hanged her body at a cowshed in Jharkhand’s Palamu district on Thursday, police said.
The accused was on the run following the incident, which happened in Harbhonga village in Chainpur police station area, they said.
There was enmity between the man and his sister’s family over land, and the murder is a result of that, Chainpur police station’s in-charge Uday Kumar Gupta said.
No one was at home when the incident happened, he said.
A hunt is on for the accused, he added.
