A crime most heinous was committed by Muslim boy Laik Khan. A young Hindu girl who is 17-year-old girl named Neetu was brutally beaten to death in Delhi’s Rohini, by 25-year-old Muslim boy Laik Khan for rejecting his marriage proposal.
Khan had met Neetu at her cousin Kaushal’s home in Begumpur on Friday. After spending sometime, Laik sent Kaushal to buy some chicken.
When Kaushal returned home, he found Khan standing bloodstained with a hammer. He also saw that he locked Neetu inside the house. Kaushal was attempting to stop him, but he lost.
Kaushal told the police that last few months, Laik Khan had pestered Neetu to marry him, but Neetu rejected his proposals. He says that Khan was known to the family, and that he even stayed with them once. Neetu also told her mother about Khan’s suggestion and her eventual rejection.
“The girl’s family earlier used to stay in Bawana where the accused was their neighbour. The families of both were known to each other. Laik Khan used to visit the girl’s home often and had even stayed at her house for around a month. The accused killed the girl, who was studying in Class XI, after she refused to marry him” said DCP (Rohini) P K Mishra.
“Neetu had told me he harassed her and had threatened to kill her. I was out on some work when he came to the house and sent Kaushal to get food” said Neetu’s mum, Rani Devi.
The Delhi Police have formed six teams to nab Laik Khan, who is currently absconding.
