“Some people came to my house today and started fighting. They shot my daughter in the head. Manish Yadav, Shivpali Yadav and Gaurav Chak killed my daughter. My daughter was a Class 12 student. These people used abusive words for her when she was coming home from school. My daughter responded and opposed the harassment,” he said. He further added that his daughter was killed for resisting an attempt of sexual harassment.
