In Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, a woman’s body was discovered inside a suitcase. According to sources, her father shot her dead over her marriage and lifestyle.
On the Yamuna Expressway last week, Aayushi Yadav’s body was discovered inside a suitcase and wrapped in plastic. She was recognised as a Badarpur, Delhi, inhabitant, aged 21.
When Yadav’s father went to identify the deceased, the police detained and questioned him. In response to his daughter’s engagement to a man from a different caste and her late-night outings, Nitish Yadav is said to have shot her dead.
Police sources claim that Aayushi secretly wed Chhatrapal, a member of a different caste, without alerting her family. Her parents were upset with her for what they saw as rebellion and a “stubborn” attitude.
Nitesh Yadav allegedly killed Aayushi with his legally owned gun, put her body in a suitcase, and dumped it in Mathura. Police teams have been sent out to look for the murder weapon.
The fatal tragedy occurs just a few days after the murder trial for Shraddha Walkar.
Aftab Amin Poonawalla, Shraddha’s live-in partner, is accused of strangling her and dismembering her body into 35 parts. After Delhi police began looking into a missing person report submitted by Shraddha’s father, Vikas Walker, he was taken into custody on Saturday. Police are currently holding Poonawalla.
