A teenage girl was allegedly gunned down for ‘honour’ by her pitiless brother in Pathan Colony, in Banaras, on Monday.
After shooting his sister, the boy fled from the murder scene; the police had begun searches to arrest him.
The police said the accused was suspicious about his younger sister’s character and shot her dead after a quarrel.
The girl’s body was shifted to a hospital for post-mortem examination.
