New Delhi: In case of honour killing, the parents of a 21-year-old Delhi university student has been arrested for allegedly murdering her.
Bhawna Yadav, a final year student of Sanskrit Honours at Venkateswara College, was allegedly strangled to death by her parents Jagmohan Yadav, a property dealer and his wife Savitri.
Her husband Abhishek said, her parents reached his home that very night and said that they would get them married in a grand function and took their daughter with them.
On Saturday night, Abhishek got a call from Bhawna’s maternal uncle Lakhan who allegedly threatened to kill both of them. “Minutes later, I got a call from Bhawna that her uncle was drunk and he should ignore him. The next morning, repeated calls on Bhawna and her parent’s number went unanswered. Sometime later, I got a call from her cousin Sachin who informed me that Bhawna was cremated in Alwar, following which I approached police,” said Abhishek in his police complaint.
One of Bhawna’s neighbour Mahinder told police that her parents told him that she was bitten by a snake and he drove them to their ancestral place in Alwar in his car for some ‘tantrik rituals’ to get her cured. “Mahinder told us that Bhawna appeared to be dead when she was kept in his car,” the police official added. Following the disclosure, police nabbed the parents from their house.
