Palwal, July 9

Two weeks after a man was abducted and murdered at Banchari village in Palwal, the police have arrested his mother-in-law, brother-in-law (a juvenile) and another person in a suspected case of honour killing.

The deceased, Gaurav Malik, a resident of Javan village in Faridabad, had married a woman against the wishes of her parents on May 30.

DSP Vishal Kumar said Mukesh Malik, the father of Gaurav, in his complaint, had alleged that his son was abducted and murdered when he came to visit his maternal aunt at Banchari on June 25.

The complainant suspected Gaurav’s in-laws to be behind the crime as they never approved of their relationship, the DSP said.

Gaurav’s in-laws had lodged a police complaint on May 31 seeking his arrest for kidnapping, he added. The couple reportedly shifted to Gurugram in view of the opposition from the woman’s family.

Following the complaint, an SIT arrested the three accused on Monday. The accused named in the FIR are Bachu Singh, a resident of Shahpur village of the district, Raju, Ravinder and Ramjit of Ghori village, Viresh, Bhupesh, Mohit and Rohit from Sadarpur village and Bhupender of Hodal.

While Bachu had been sent to two-day police remand, the woman was remanded in judicial custody and the minor was sent to a juvenile home, the DSP said.
