A massacre that took place in broad daylight in Hyderabad has shocked everyone. Nagaraj, a 25-year-old from Secunderabad, Telangana, worked as a salesman in a car showroom in Hyderabad.
Since he and Syed Ashrin Sultana from the same area were educated in the same college, this friendship has turned into love over the course of the day.
There is strong opposition between the parents at home as they both belong to different communities. Nagaraj and Sultana got married against the wishes of the family two months ago without the knowledge of their parents as both the houses were in strong opposition.
The lovers took up residence in Hyderabad and lived there without any problem for anyone. The woman converted to Hinduism and changed her name to Pallavi. Also, the two are married according to Hindu custom.
Meanwhile, Nagaraj was returning home on a two-wheeler with his wife Sultana last Wednesday night. When they arrived at a congested area near the Saroor Nagar Tasildar’s office, a gang of four suddenly overtook Nagaraj’s two-wheeler.
The mob slashed Nagaraj in front of his wife Sultana with a hidden knife and scythe. Then, knowing that it was her relatives who were attacking her husband, the Sultana begged the mob to release her.
However, the mob pushed the Sultana down and killed Nagaraj with a barrage of bullets before he left.
Everyone was having fun watching this incident take place on the road in the afternoon. One of the gang members, who was not obsessed with seeing Nagaraj’s body, attacked Nagaraj’s body again with an iron bar.
When the Sultana tried to stop this, the man raised the bar to attack the Sultana as well. The enraged public attacked the killer with a helmet in hand.
The man was subsequently picked up and handed over to police. This heartbreaking video has now been released on social media and caused a great stir.
Following this, the police seized Nagaraj’s body and sent it to the government hospital for autopsy. Police are investigating the arrested person.
Preliminary interrogation of him revealed that they had confessed to the murder out of anger as they could not accept that their housewife was married to a young man of a different religion.
Following this, 4 of his relatives have been arrested and the police have registered a case and are investigating.
Meanwhile, the Telangana BJP has taken up the issue. Speaking on the occasion, BJP MLA Raja Singh said, “We need to find out whether there is only the woman’s family behind this affair, or whether there are religious groups behind them. We need to conduct a full investigation and uncover the truth.”
The massacre has caused great tension in Hyderabad. Many young people are sharing the hashtag #JusticeForNagaraju on social media. The public is demanding justice for the death of Nagaraju, who was murdered out of love. The incident has created a tense situation in Hyderabad.
Another interfaith marriage ends with Hindu spouse’s murder in India where hate crimes against Hindus seem to have been normalised for the good of diversity.
