New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) Enraged over a youth from another caste falling in love with his sister, her minor brother killed the youth with the help of two of his friends - one of whom was also a minor, police said Saturday. The three have been arrested.
“We have arrested three people in connection with the case of honour killing of Bunty, who was in love with a girl from a different caste,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (central Delhi) Jaspal Singh told reporters here.

The body of Bunty, 20, a resident of Anand Parbat in central Delhi, was found in an empty water tank Tuesday in the nearby Nehru Nagar, Singh said. He was missing since March 16 but his family filed a missing person case only Monday (March 29).

Investigations revealed that Bunty was in love with a girl, and her family was questioned. Some contradictions were found in her brother’s version and he was interrogated further.

The brother finally admitted he had roped in two of his friends - Arun, 22, and another one, who was also a minor, to kill Bunty.

Bunty was called by the three to a railway track in the area March 16. He was first assaulted with a razor, and then pushed inside the tank, Singh said.
