Rajnish was picked up from home by the police last week for allegedly abducting a woman, Anchal, and forcibly marrying her, a charge she vehemently denies.
"The killers of my husband must be arrested. They should be treated the same way my husband was. I am a widow. I can't live without him," said Anchal.
The girl said she knew Rajnish for a long time. They were in love. She wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. Today she considers herself a widow. She holds her relatives' responsible as they forced her to lodge the complaint.
In Jammu, mostly custodial death of alleged militants create controversies. And deaths of alleged criminals in a police station are rare. But it has added an edge to the discontent about security men in the state.
