Delhi: 31 year old Ankit Garg shot dead, sister accuses family of Muslim girl he was in love with

In a shocking incident, 31-year-old Ankit Garg, a teacher in Delhi, was shot dead in broad daylight by a masked gunman in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area. Garg was reportedly in a relationship with his student, a Muslim girl, and while they wanted to get married, the girl’s family was opposing the same. According to police, Ankit was shot at by a gunman who was waiting for him for 25 minutes at the staircase of the coaching centre where he used to teach.

As per reports, Ankit was threatened many times before he was shot dead. Police is currently investigating the case. In another such incident, in February this year, a Hindu boy named Ankit Saxena was brutally murdered in Delhi for being in a relationship with a girl named Shehzadi from the Muslim community. The alleged murderers were relatives, including parents, of the girl. The Ankit Saxena case particularly gained gravity because this went on to become a classic example of varied media houses’ bias reporting where mainstream media tried to conceal the religious identity of the girl’s family.

In September, a Muslim woman was killed by her brother and father for being in a ‘relationship’ with a Hindu man in West Bengal. In June last year, a pregnant Muslim woman was burnt alive by her family in Karnataka for marrying a Hindu man, while a Hindu man and his Muslim wife were killed in broad daylight by woman’s brother in Uttar Pradesh in November 2014.
