“Police in northern India have arrested at least four members of the same family for allegedly beating their relative, a 17-year-old girl, to death last week for wearing jeans, the Quint, an Indian news site, reported on Thursday.

Several members of Neha Paswan’s family, including her grandfather and uncles, severely beat the teenager to death with wooden sticks on July 19, according to Neha’s mother. The altercation erupted following an argument over Neha’s clothing at her family home in the village of Savreji Kharg, located in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Savreji Kharg is located in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoria district, “one of the least developed regions in the state,” according to the BBC”.
