Visakhapatnam: A 16-year-old-girl was found murdered at her residence in Relliveedhi under One-Town police station limits in Vizag city on Friday.

The deceased was a Class-X student in Vizag city. "We suspect that the deceased father V Vara Prasad might have killed her. The investigation is on to ascertain the exact reasons behind the murder," said Inspector of One-Town L Revathamma.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that Vara Prasad is a chronic alcoholic. "Prasad's wife deserted him around 10 years ago due to alleged harassment. A few years ago, his elder daughter left the house and she has been staying with her boyfriend," Revathamma added.

Though the police are yet to establish the exact reasons for the murder, they suspect that it was a case of honor killing. Police took the accused into their custody for interrogation and the body was shifted for post-mortem.
