Ranchi:In yet another instance of honour killing, a girl and her lover were brutally murdered by the girl’s father and other relatives in Ranchi on December 13.
Shockingly, the girl was gang-raped with consent of her father and uncle by three other persons in presence of her lover before being killed by them. Her lover’s death came soon after, and both of their bodies were dumped in the forests on the outskirts of Ranchi.
Fortunately, the girl’s body was recovered by the police on December 13 itself, which made it possible for the police to record her statement that indicted her father, uncle and three other accused. She died on December 14.
The body of the boy, however, could only be found on December 20.
In her statement, the girl recounted how her father Moin Ansari had persuaded the couple to return home and promised to marry them. The couple, on October 25, had fled to Jamshedpur where the boy Pravin Sahu had rented an accommodation to hide for few days.
Convinced by her father's cajoling, the couple came back to Ranchi on December 13, only to find the girl’s uncle Rakib Ansari along with three other persons. The couple was then forced into a car and taken to a jungle on the outskirts of Ranchi where the incident happened.
Police officials revealed to Amar Ujala of having booked the culprits on charges of gang rape, murder, kidnapping and destruction of evidence.
