3 Arrested After Hindu Man Killed By Muslim Girlfriend’s Family In Delhi

New Delhi : Three people have been arrested and a minor detained for the murder of a 23-year-old photographer Ankit Saxena, killed allegedly by the family of his Muslim girlfriend in west Delhi. Ankit was attacked on a street near his home on Thursday night and was stabbed in the neck, the police said.

The police arrested the mother and uncle of Ankit’s girlfriend and detained her 14-year-old brother. The mother and uncle of Ankit’s girlfriend were arrested from the site of the murder, while her father and younger brother were taken into custody by the police from their house later.

Ankit was dating the 20-year-old second-year college student for the past three years. The police said her family was opposed to the relationship because Ankit was a Hindu.

There is heavy police deployment in Raghubir Nagar, the area where Ankit was killed. Police said the stepped-up security is a precautionary measure.

At around 9 pm on Thursday, he was beaten and then was stabbed with a knife. The road was full of blood where he collapsed. Ankit’s mother reportedly ran out of her home when she was told that he was being attacked. She has told the police that she saw the woman’s father stabbing her son.

SRINAGAR : Two Kashmiri youth arrested for receiving arms training at a Lashkar-e-Taiba camp in Islamabad had crossed the border on valid Pakistani visas, SP Vaid, the Jammu and Kashmir police chief said today. The two had crossed over through the Wagah border in Punjab.

"Those imparting training are in collusion with those giving visas," Mr Vaid said in a sharp attack at the Pakistan High Commission.

They were arrested in a joint operation by the police, army and central forces before they could join the ranks of the terror group. The two were identified by the Kashmir police as Abdul Majeed Bhat and Mohammad Ashraf Mir. They are from two towns of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district, Kreeri and Pattan.

Mr Vaid said the two men had detailed how training was being imparted at these terror camps.

During questioning, the two men told the police that they were located at a camp in Islamabad. A large number of other inmates at the camp were Pakistani teens, most of them from the restive Balochistan province. Some of the boys roped in for training were as young as 10 years old.
