Last week, a Dalit man was hacked to death in front of his pregnant wife, who belongs to Vyshya (Baniya) community. The incident took place in Miryalaguda town of Telangana's Nalgonda district.
The man was killed while he was coming out of a clinic where he had gone for his wife's pre-natal check-up. The killer, who was given a contract, stabbed the victim with a machete to death.
It later emerged that the woman's father, who was unhappy with his daughter's marriage, gave a contract of Rs one crore to kill his son-in-law.
The man, who hacked the victim to death, was nabbed from Bihar's Samasthipur on Tuesday.
