Three Indian girls were killed in the state of Andhra Pradesh after being lured away from a wedding, apparently by a relative, local media reported on Thursday.

Police said the charred bodies of the girls, aged 4, 6 and 9, were found early on Thursday on the outskirts of the town of Nizamabad, according to the IANS news agency.

The girls, all related to each other, were attending a wedding with their parents in the town late on Wednesday, when a man lured them away from the festivities with chocolate, family members were reported as saying.

The man later telephoned a family member to say that while his relatives were all getting married, he was the only one yet to settle down.

He had threatened suicide before, family members said, according to IANS.

Police launched a search for the suspect, the agency said. - Sapa-dpa
