Ankit was murdered in a pre-planned way by his Muslim girlfriend’s family, eyewitnesses say

New details have emerged in the brutal murder case of Delhi boy Ankit Saxena. The 23-year-old photographer was killed by his Muslim girlfriend’s family members a few days ago in Delhi’s Raghuvir Nagar, because the family members were reportedly unhappy with their inter-religious love affair.

According to latest reports, the girl (identified as Shehzadi in reports) had fought with her family as she wanted to marry Ankit and had stormed out of her house. The girl’s family was vehemently against her being in love with a Hindu boy and they had sought revenge from Ankit.

Eyewitness accounts have suggested that Shehzadi’s mother wore a helmet and rode her scooter to the traffic intersection where they knew Ankit was present. She then rammed her scooter into Ankit’s vehicle so that Ankit would be forced to step out to help. As she was wearing a helmet, Ankit could not identify her and stepped out to help.

The woman then confronted Ankit and soon she was joined by her other family members. They all began to heckle and abuse Ankit blaming him that he had influenced Shehzadi to leave the house. A shop owner in the area has stated that when confronted by Shehzadi’s family, Ankit denied being in a relationship with her so that he is left alone. Another resident of the area has stated that Ankit even requested to call the police or be taken to police station, but the girl’s family just kept beating him.

Neighbours alerted Ankit’s parents of the incident and they had rushed to the spot. But Shehzadi’s mother began thrashing Ankit’s mother too who fell down. When Ankit bent down to help his mother get up, the girl’s uncle and brother then caught him by his hair and pulled him up. At that moment, while the two of them held Ankit’s arms from behind, the girl’s father slit his throat using his butchering knife.

The eyewitnesses stating the events of the day have requested media organisations not to identified them by their full names. They also added that Ankit did not die immediately after his throat being slit. He had walked a distance looking for help before he collapsed. Ankit died in his parents’ arms when they were rushing him to hospital. Police have arrested four members of the girl’s family, including a minor, for the murder.

Ankit was cremated in Haridwar, Uttarakhand on Sunday by his family members. He was reportedly lone earning member of the family. Delhi BJP leader Manoj Tiwari had earlier demanded monetary compensation of 1 crore rupees for Ankit’s family.
