UP man murders wife in honour killing

The youth, identified as Samarjit Singh, took his wife to his native village in Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, killed her and buried the body outside his house. Samarjit and his uncle even planted a sapling on the land to avoid suspicion.

“We have arrested Sarabjit, his brother and uncle on the charges of killing Deepa,” said Additional DCP ( South East) Gaurav Sharma on Saturday.

According to the police Deepa, who also hailed from Sultanpur, eloped with 20- year- old Samarjit Singh in February last year and they got married without the consent of their families. They were staying at Pul Prahladpur in south east Delhi and Samarjit was working as a security guard.

On Thursday, the police arrested Samarjit from Nagaipur village.

Deepa’s decomposed body was recovered and was identified by her father.
