with his father claiming his son was killed because of his
inter-caste marriage with the daughter of a senior BJP leader.

The Haryana police recovered Alok`s body from a room of a
private hotel which was booked in the name of one Anurag, an
official release said here.

Gaffar, the state General Secretary of BJP in Rajasthan, was
against their inter-cast marriage," the release said.
Police have registered a case of murder following a
complaint by Alok`s father against unidentified killers, it
said
