Jaipur: In a case of honour killing, a youth
was killed allegedly by brothers of a married girl with whom he was in a relationship in Hanumangarh district, police said.

The youth, identified as Dholipal village-resident Prahalad alias Bablu, had recently eloped with Suman.
Yesterday, three brothers of the girl caught Bablu and
tied him to a tree. They then assaulted him with batons and
sharp-edged weapons in broad daylight, police said.

The trio left the spot after they took Bablu as dead. The
youth was later taken to a nearby hospital where doctors
referred him to Bikaner government hospital. The youth died
while he was being taken to Bikaner, police said.

The trio -- Pintu, Devendra and Sandeep -- were arrested
in this connection, they added.
