As per the complaint filed by Savitri, wife of the deceased, her son Rajendra was married to Babita 30 years ago. Due to a tussle between the couple, Babita went to her maternal home with her children four days ago. “Around 7 am on Monday, when my husband Suresh was sitting on a cot outside his slum, Babita’s father Surjan reached here in an auto with his four sons Ajay, Vikas, Kunal and Karan,” she said.

“As soon as he arrived, Surjan started abusing Suresh and then everyone got together and beat him up with sticks. My husband got injured and when my daughter and I tried to save him, the accused also beat us,” the complainant said. “When I shouted for help, people started gathering on the spot. That is when accused managed to flee away in their auto.
