A teenage girl left pregnant after being raped was strangled to death by her father who then mutilated her body in an honour killing in India.  

The 16-year-old, who has not been named, is thought to have been killed on September 23 when she went missing from a village close to Shahjahanpur, in northern India.

Police believe the girl was beaten and strangled, before her dead body was decapitated and the headless corpse buried in a riverbed.

The case was only brought to light after the body was discovered on Tuesday, because her family did not report her as missing.
