Uttar Pradesh: Muslim brother kills woman for marrying a Hindu man

Woman’s family was angry over her choosing to marry outside religion and changing her religion of birth.

A woman has been killed in Uttar Pradesh by her brother and family members for having married outside her religion and changing her religion after marriage. The murder took place at Karua Sahabganj village in Bareily district of Uttar Pradesh.

According to media reports, 19-year-old Mohini, whose name was Nargis before she chose to have love marriage with a Hindu man Ram Kishore from the same village, was killed by Gulsher, her elder brother. Mohini died on the spot while Ram Kishore is admitted to a hospital.

The Muslim woman and the Hindu man had got married in a court in April last year after the woman’s family refused to accept this relationship. After marriage, the young couple had left village to escape the wrath of the bride’s unhappy family.

The couple had returned to their village a few days ago and were on their way to get their newborn daughter vaccinated, when woman’s family attacked the couple. Mohini alias Nargis was shot at her temple leading to her instant death. Murderers fled the scene after committing the crime.

Police force has been deployed in the village lest the incident leads to communal tensions. Police officers have told media that the accused left the village after locking their home, but police companies were looking for them and they will soon be arrested.

This unfortunately is not the first time when such a crime has taken place. Last year in West Bengal, a Muslim woman was similarly killed by her brother and father for being in a relationship with a Hindu man, while earlier a pregnant Muslim woman was burnt alive by her family members in Karnataka for the same reason.
