A CCTV camera visual of a young man lying bleeding on a road in Hyderabad with his face beaten to a pulp with an iron rod has gone viral on social media. This is said to be an honor killing and the man, a Hindu may have been killed by relatives of his Muslim wife. The couple married only three months ago and the wife is seen fighting off his attackers in the video.
B Nagaraju and Syed Ashrin Sulthana had just left home on Wednesday evening on their bike. Two men blocked their way and attacked them with an iron rod. In a few seconds, Nagaraju is dead with his face becoming a bloodies mass. A crowd gathered but watched as the attackers kept beating Nagaraju who died on the spot.
Nagaraju and Sulthana had married in January, at Arya Samaj in the old city of Hyderabad. Parents of both sides did not agree to the marriage. But the couple decided to go ahead since they had known each other since Class 10. Sulthana had changed her name to Pallavi after the wedding which even enraged her family.
