A heated argument due to an Indian man refusing a marriage proposal from his girlfriend lead to his brutal death by her and her female relatives.
The victim’s body was discovered by locals on the morning of November 16, in the village of Badhar, Jharkhand in India, according to an international news website.
Initially it was unclear whether the brutal murder was committed at the scene but it was later discovered that the victim was killed in his girlfriend’s room.
Upon police arriving at the scene, some locals identified the victim as 20-year-old Mukesh Kumar. His family were soon informed. Family members arrived at the scene where they broke down after seeing Mukesh’s body.
His father, Bhikhari Yadav, explained what may have led to his son’s death.
He revealed that his family used to live in Ranchi. During that time, his family became friends with Shivdular Yadav’s family whose daughter he later got into a relationship with.
However, the friendship between the two families ended after Shivdular found out about the relationship between the two.
Initially, officers were not convinced by Bhikhari’s allegations but he explained his son’s love affair in detail and revealed that Mukesh wanted to elope with his lover after her father found out.
Deputy superintendent of police (DSP) KK Singh and officer Manoj Kumar from the local police led a team to search Shivdular’s house. They later found bloodstains on one of the walls, a rope and several sharp weapons.
Further investigation revealed that the girlfriend and her female family members were involved.
The group confessed to their crime and explained that Mukesh had entered the house late at night and went into his girlfriend’s room.
It was revealed that Shivdular found out about their affair, Mukesh would insist on eloping with the young woman but would later refuse to marry her.
Inside the room, Mukesh told his lover that they will elope. But his girlfriend did not believe him and claimed his marriage refusals were due to him cheating on her.
This led to a heated argument and eventually caused several female relatives to enter the room.
The women reportedly grabbed Mukesh and tied him up using a rope.
They beat him with a metal pot before stabbing him numerous times, killing him. His body was later dumped where it was found.
Officers have arrested the women. The victim’s body was sent for a post-mortem while investigations were ongoing.
