Newly married Dalit girl and OBC boy killed by girl’s brothers in Tamil Nadu

In a shocking incident in Kumbakonam city in Thanjavur, a newlywed couple was murdered by the bride’s brother over an inter-caste marriage. The girl belongs to the Dalit community while the boy comes from the backward community.

The girl’s brothers were upset over the inter-caste marriage done by the sister. They didn’t want to let their sister marry a boy coming from a backward community.

Saranya, who worked as a nurse, and Mohan married about a week ago even as the woman’s family opposed their relationship. The woman’s brother – said to be involved in the killing– wanted her to marry another man, Ranjith, who is also an accused in the case, the police said.

As per reports, Saranya’s brother, Sakthivel, invited the couple over for a feast when he, along with Ranjith, allegedly murdered them. On a phone call, the girl’s family had taken the boy in confidence that they are now happy with their relationship. However, it was pre-planned to kill the couple.

Saranya belonged to the SC community, while Mohan hailed from the Most Backward Class community, said police. Sakthivel wanted Saranya to marry his brother-in-law Ranjith of Devananchery in the Thanjavur district. Saranya chose to marry Mohan with whom she was in love and accordingly married him a few days ago.

She conveyed news about her marriage to her family over the phone, said sources. Thereafter, Sakthivel invited her for a reception at his house. After lunch, as Saranya got ready to leave for Chennai along with Mohan, Sakthivel and Ranjith allegedly hacked the couple to death. The couple died instantly.
