The 'honour killing' of B Nagaraju, 25, in Saroornagar, a suburb of Hyderabad, sent shockwaves across the country. Nagaraju was killed by his wife's relatives, who were opposed to the interfaith marriage. As the incident began to take on political overtones, Asaduddin Owaisi, the chief of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), condemned the crime and called it a "criminal conduct" under the Constitution and Islam.
He remarked, while speaking to the people in Hyderabad, Telangana, "We strongly condemn the (honour killing) tragedy in Saroornagar. The woman voluntarily chose to marry. Her sibling has no legal authority to murder her spouse. According to the Constitution, it is a criminal conduct, and it is the worst crime in Islam." He went on to say, mocking his critics, "Since yesterday, this affair has taken on a new hue. Didn't the cops in Hyderabad arrest the suspect right away? He's been taken into custody. We do not support the killers "He continued.
Two relatives of Ashrin Sulthana alias Pallavi were detained on Thursday in Hyderabad's Saroornagar police station for their involvement in the murder of Billipuram Nagaraju. Syed Mobin Ahmed, Ashrin Sulthana's brother, and Mohammed Masood Ahmed have been named as the suspects. Saroornagar police said both of the accused were detained on Thursday and are being held in judicial custody before the Hon'ble Court. "A case has been filed under Section 302 of the IPC and the SC/ST Act. The investigation will be completed soon. We'll file an application with a fast track court so that the trial can be completed quickly and the defendants punished. The family of the deceased would receive monetary and employment advantages "LB Nagar's DCP had informed.
A married couple riding a bike was attacked with an iron rod and stabbed at 9 p.m. on Wednesday in Hyderabad's Panjala Anil Kumar Colony, with the man being killed on the spot. According to authorities, both of the suspects developed a resentment towards the dead since he married Syed Mobin Ahmed's sister.
"Billipuram Nagaraju, a member of the SC-Mala group, and Ashrin Sulthana, a Muslim, had been in love for more than five years before she died. They were high school classmates who attended the same high school and college. Mobin had warned his sister that she was in love with the deceased. On January 30, 2022, she left her house in IDPL Colony, Balanagar, with her mobile phone still inside. Nagaraju and Ashrin Sulthana married the next day at Arya Samaj in Hyderabad's Old City ", according to a police statement.
