BENGALURU: An inter-faith love story ended on a tragic note with the girl’s father and his associates allegedly murdering her 24-year-old boyfriend in Kudur, Magadi taluk, Ramanagara district on Tuesday morning.
K Lakshmipathi, a resident of Basavanahalli near Nelamangala, was allegedly strangled to death by Nizamuddin, 45, and his elder son Sikandar, 20, (goods auto drivers) who have been arrested, and their associates, Ibrat and Auto Mohammed, who are on the run. All the accused are residents of Islampura near Basavanahalli. Lakshmipathi, a garment factory employee and part-time auto driver, was killed in front of his brother.
Probe revealed Lakshmipathi was in love with Nizamuddin’s younger daughter and both the families were against the relationship. “The two eloped last month to tie the knot but returned after Nizamuddin convinced his daughter saying he would get them married. On Tuesday morning, Nizamuddin and the three others took Lakshmipathi and his elder brother Nataraj to a deserted spot in Kanakenahallilaya, a village near Kudur, on the pretext of marriage talks where they strangled Lakshmipathi to death,” said superintendent of police, Ramanagara, S Girish.
K Nataraj, elder brother of Lakshmipathi, claimed in his complaint that the accused mercilessly strangled his brother as he watched helplessly. “Around 10am on Tuesday, Nizamuddin took my brother Lakshmipathi to his house, saying they would decide the wedding date and other issues. I accompanied them. Sikandar and the others said we should go out and hold the discussion. Lakshmipathi spoke to the girl, telling her they were going to discuss the matter,” Nataraj said.
“We travelled in Nizamuddin’s auto and reached Kanakenahallilaya. He took us to a prayer hall and then to the foot of a rocky mountain. He made us drink alcohol. A little later, they started abusing Lakshmipathi, citing religious differences and told him he shouldn’t even dream of marrying the girl. When he resisted, the four started beating him up. They pulled out his belt and as I watched, Sikandar and Ibrat strangled my brother to death. They threatened to kill me too. I ran away and hid in a field. Nizamuddin came looking for me…They grabbed me and bundled me into the auto.
They pushed me out near Kunigal Cross and told me not to reveal anything or else they would kill my other family members,” Nataraj, a daily-wage worker, said in the complaint….
