- Man identified as Ankit killed near West Delhi on Thursday
- Police say was attacked by girlfriend's family who disapproved of him
- Ankit had been dating the woman for the last three years
The man, Ankit Saxena, had been dating the 20-year-old woman for the past three years, against the wishes of her family because they are from different communities, according to the police.
Around 9 pm last night, Ankit was attacked allegedly by his girlfriend's parents, uncle and brother. Ankit was beaten and then slashed with a knife. The road was full of blood where he collapsed.
The young woman, a second year college student, had grown close to Ankit when they were neighbours a few years ago. She continued the relationship even after her family moved away.
"During the investigation, we found that they caught and stabbed Ankit in the neck. The woman's family was against their relationship as they belonged to different communities and had warned Ankit against associating with her," senior police officer Vijay Kumar said.
