In a shocking incident, a young woman from Jaipur has alleged that her parents had hired murderers to kill her husband. She said that she saw her husband murdered.
Mamata Chaudhary, 30, had married Amit Nayyar, 28, an engineer from Kerala a year-and-a-half ago. They had met when they were living in the same neighbourhood. Her parents, however, had issues with their marriage. But despite their objections, the couple decided to tie the knot and they settled down in Jaipur, where Nayyar was working as a civil engineer in a private firm.
On Wednesday, Ms Chaudhary that her father Jeevan Ram Chaudhary and her mother came calling, the first time since her wedding. “My parents came to see me, they asked about Amit,” she told the police. It raised hopes of reconciliation with her parents for the young woman, who is six months’ pregnant.
As the family settled down, two men barged into the room. “They fired four shots at him,” Ms Chaudhary said. Mr Nayyar was rushed to the hospital, where he was declared dead. He had sustained injuries in the neck and chest and died due to excessive bleeding.
Police are on the hunt for the parents who are absconding.
“The parents kept pressurising her to walk out of the marriage but she would not agree,” said Ashok Gupta, a senior police officer. He also said the parents tried to take the daughter forcibly when they had come to meet her. “When she resisted, they fired four times at her husband,” he added.
