Hyderabad: Man Stabbed to Death Over Inter-Caste Marriage; Four Arrested

In another case of caste-related violence, a man who had married a woman from a different caste, was stabbed to death in Hyderabad's Begum Bazaar, on Friday.

The deceased, identified as Neeraj P, was on a two-wheeler with his father when the assailants stopped the vehicle and allegedly stabbed him multiple times.

The deceased belonged to the Marwadi community, while the accused belong to the (Other Backward Class) OBC community of Yadavs, Hyderabad police told The Quint.

According to the authorities, Neeraj P, who was a business person, married the woman against her family's wishes last year. The two also have a child together.

A protest ensued at Begum Bazaar on 21 May, after the incident.

The man died on his way to the hospital, the officials said. Further investigations are going on, they added.

Earlier in May, in a different case of inter-caste violence, Nagaraju, a Dalit man, was stabbed to death in Hyderabad over his marriage to a woman from upper caste Muslim community.
