Three days after a 20-year-old Dalit girl was found murdered at her village in Sonepat district, the police have arrested her lover, Ajmer Kumar of Pinana village.


Police said that the accused had told them that he had relations with the victim for the last several months.

As his marriage was fixed for March 6 with someone else, the victim was allegedly pressuring him to marry her or she would 'expose' him. He said that he got scared and decided to get rid of her. He killed her and dumped the body near the village crematorium.

Mohana police station house officer sub-inspector Jagdish Chander said that the accused had murdered the victim using a weight-lifting rod which has been recovered by the police. He said that the accused was produced in a court and was sent to 14-day judicial custody.
