A family in West Bengal is alleging a Muslim man purposely concealed his Islam beliefs to marry a Hindu girl — and then shot her after he was outed for not being Hindu.
The family members say they consented to the marriage but then, after discovering he was a Muslim and not Hindu, called it off.
That’s when the Muslim, furious, shot her, they said.
From India Today:
Family members of a woman in West Bengal have alleged that a man from a different community impersonated himself and fooled the woman to walk into a relationship.
The family members have alleged that the man concealed his identity and lured the woman. They claim that they were unaware of this and had even consented to a court marriage. However, later when his identity was discovered, the marriage was called off and the man, in a fit of rage, shot the woman dead.
The case pertains to Howrah district of West Bengal.
Locals say the man, Shiekh Sultan, was in a relationship with Subhologna. Sultan is said to be a resident of Karatipara area in Konnagar
The locals claim that Sultan deliberately concealed his identity from Subholongna. They allege that this is part of a larger conspiracy to lure women from their community by members of a different community.
When the woman’s family members were informed about his true identity, the family called off the marriage.
Angry at this, Sultan then shot Shubhologna dead on Thursday. He tried to escape from the crime scene but was nabbed by the locals.
The incident took place in the Konnagar area under Uttarpara Police Station around 8 pm on June 12.
Speaking about the case police said, “When the marriage was being called off, Sultan attacked his to-be wife on Thursday. Her parents, Tushar Chakroborty and Shubhra Chakroborty, were severely injured while trying to save her. They are being treated in the Uttarpara State General Hospital.”
Sultan has been taken into police custody for seven days.
Neither his family nor the parent’s of the deceased woman could be reached for their comments.
