The 16-year-old deceased has been identified as Likhita Sree by the police. Her father was an ambulance driver (Vara Prasad) at Relliveedhi.
The girl's father, Vara Prasad, posted a video on the social media network confessing that he killed his daughter because of her affair with a guy.
"She was having an affair with a guy who lives in the same area. My older daughter had already run with her lover. Now, my younger daughter who studies in class 10 was also having a love affair," he said in the video.
"I provided her with whatever she asked for. He brought her up in a pampered manner. I warned her not to talk with the guy, but she didn't hear. That's why, I killed her," he further said.
The police said that it initially suspected it to be a murder, but after noticing marks on the deceased's neck, registered a case of a suspicious death.
The police further said that the body has been sent for post-mortem and FIR has also been registered in the case.
