New Delhi Television has reported that one Neeraj was stabbed to death allegedly by his brothers-in-law who were against their sister’s inter-caste love marriage. This incident came to light from the city of Panipat’s busy market area on January 1. The couple had been married for mere one and a half months.

A CCTV camera footage that has been accessed by the media, shows the accused persons running from the crime scene. Though the police have filed an FIR in the matter, they are yet to arrest the accused who stabbed Neeraj at least a dozen times.

Neeraj’s elder brother Jagdeesh who is also the complainant, said that the accused had called his brother minutes before the attack and sought a meeting. He added that they had even called their sister saying “you will cry soon”.

He further accused the police for inaction and revealed that the accused had been threatening his brother, the victim for a long time and they had also sought police protection that much to their dismay was ignored.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Satish Kumar Vats said, “The woman and the man’s families had agreed to the marriage and this was given in writing at a village panchayat meeting. But the woman’s brothers did not approve, and had been threatening the couple.”

More updates awaited.
