Another case of honor killing!!! A case of death due to stabbing was reported in New Ashok Nagar locality of Delhi on Friday and police suspect it to be a case of honor killing. The man, identified as Dinesh, had eloped with his cousin aged 23 years four days prior to his killing. He was murdered by the girl’s brother and uncle named Rinku (25) and Shankar (22) both of whom are employed at a local gym.
Dinesh, who resided in Seemapuri, was in love with his cousin who shared similar feelings. Notwithstanding the fact that he was a married man with three kids, both ran away from their homes four days before his murder. The girl’s marriage was to take place in the following month with another man. The girl’s brother and uncle confessed to the crime while being interrogated by the district’s senior police officer and disclosed that they did it because of the embarrassment caused due to the incident.
The duo learnt the location of the couple on Friday and reached Mayur Vihar at about 5.20 pm. Steering them to a canal close by, they stabbed both of them several times. The injuries proved fatal for Dinesh while the girl who survived is undergoing treatment in the hospital.
As reported by DCP East, an alarm was raised by a Delhi Home Guard constable named Omvir Bisnoi and this led people to gather near the scene of crime and intervene. The PCR staff also reached and tried to prevent the accused. The accused have justified their crime stating that the girl who was enticed by the deceased had run away with the cash and gold ornaments kept aside for her marriage.
While other family members are being questioned by the local police, post mortem results of Dinesh’s body are awaited. A detailed report can be obtained only after the girl recovers sufficiently enough to be able to give a statement.
