Police quiz family members, kin of woman in suspected honour

New Delhi: Police Monday questioned family
members and other relatives of the woman who, along with her
26-year-old husband, was allegedly murdered in northwest
Delhi last night in a suspected case of honour killing.

"We are questioning several persons including family
members and relatives of the deceased Monica in connection
with the case," a senior police official said.

Monica had married Kuldeep against the wishes of her
family members four years ago. They belonged to different
castes.

Asked whether it was a case of honour killing, DCP North
West N S Bundela said "we are suspecting the involvement of
family members".

Family members of the deceased Kuldeep have suspected the
involvement of Monica`s family members in the incident, he
said, adding "we are investigating from all possible angles
and nothing more than this can be said at this point of time."

"We only suspect that someone known to Monica would have
killed her as the crime scene suggests that the assailant had
a friendly entry into the flat," he added.

Meanwhile, Kuldeep`s brother Amit Singh alleged the
involvement of Monica`s family members in the murder claiming
that they were vehemently against the match.

The couple was found dead under mysterious circumstances
in Ashok Vihar last night.

While Monica was found dead in her flat, the body of
Kuldeep, who was appeared to have been shot, was recovered
from his car, police said.

Family members of Monica were initially opposed to the
match but later started meeting the couple, a police officer
said.
