Teen girl beaten to death by her religious family members because she wore jeans



A teenage girl has been beaten to death by her family members simply because she wore jeans, her mother claimed.



Neha Paswan, 17, was killed in Uttar Pradesh, India.



Neha's mum Shakuntala Devi Paswan told BBC Hindi a gang of fundamentalist men including Neha's grandfather and uncles slaughtered her with sticks.



Neha's construction worker dad Amarnath, who lives in another town, said he worked hard so Neha and his other children could go to school only for him to return to see that his daughter has been murdered.



According to Neha's mum, Shakuntala, after observing a day-long fast, Neha came downstairs wearing a pair of jeans.



Her grandfather took issue with her choice of outfit but Neha told him the item was made to be worn and she would wear it.
