Youth beats girlfriend’s father to death in UP

BAREILLY: A man – in his late 40s – was beaten to death with a heavy stick by a 28-year-old youth after the former refused to marry his daughter to him.
Police in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly said that accused Shreepal had an affair with the girl from Rasulpur village and he often used to visit her house. Her father was a marginal farmer and they used to live in a joint family.
Shreepal, on Saturday, asked the girl’s father for his daughter’s hand, which the latter refused. Soon, they both got into a heated argument and Shreepal thrashed the 48-year-old man with the stick. He died on the spot.
The incident took place in the Shahi area of Bareilly district. Sreepal has been booked under section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder) of IPC.
“My brother was looking for a suitable match for his daughter. Our family knew Shreepal. On Saturday night, he came to our house with a bottle of alcohol and asked my brother to join him. Inebriated, Shreepal asked my brother for his daughter’s hand. My brother refused and told him to leave immediately. Shreepal then tried to take my niece along with him. When my brother stopped Shreepal, he bludgeoned him to death with a heavy stick and fled,” younger brother of the victim said.
Additional SP (Rural) Raj Kumar Agarwal told TOI, “The man’s body has been recovered from the house. The accused wanted to marry his daughter. He refused. So, the accused beat him to death with a heavy stick. The accused is on the run. We will arrest him soon.”
