Jun 22nd, 2010 -- Age Correspondent | New Delhi
A day after a married couple was found shot dead in a northwest Delhi
locality in an alleged case of honour killing, the Delhi police has
launched a manhunt to nab the deceased woman's brother and his friend,
who are the main suspects in the case.
The deceased, Kuldip Singh, 26, and his wife Monika, 24, belonging to
Rajput and Gujjar castes, respectively, had tied the knot in 2006
against the wishes of their families and were living separately at
I-164, Ashok Vihar Phase-I for the past four months. Kuldip, who was
working with HCL, was found shot dead in his Maruti Esteem car and
Monika was found in a pool of blood at her residence with two gun-shot
The police said that Monika's family members are being questioned and
a manhunt has been launched to nab the girl's brother Ankit and his
friend Mandip. Sources revealed that the Monika's father, Lilu, her
uncle, Dharmendra, her youngest brother Shanky and his friend Suraj,
besides other relatives are being questioned.
The deceased couple has lodged a complaint with Ashok Vihar police in
2006 after getting married and had sought police protection.
"We are trying to find out the exact reason behind the murder," said a
Kuldip's family alleged that their son and daughter-in-law were
murdered by Ankit and his friend Mandip. "They were murdered by Ankit
and Mandip. Ankit had called up Kuldip and lured him into a trap.
Kuldip had to purchase some material for celebrating the marriage
anniversary of his wife's parents when he was shot dead," Kuldip's
elder brother Sonu said.
Mahendra Khari, the head of Wazirpur village panchayat said, "Mandip's
sister recently eloped with a man whom she married in court. Mandip
and Ankit were of the opinion that Kuldip and Monika were responsible
for the trend and had helped the couple to elope," he said.
