Love Jihad : Hindu girl kills parents to marry Muslim lover

CHINSURAH (West Bengal) : A 22-year-old college girl was detained on Tuesday for murdering her parents because they would not allow her to marry the man she loved, a chilling reminder of the 1991 Sudipa Pal case in which she had poisoned her parents and grandparents because they objected to her relationship with her tutor.

Police say Mousumi Sarkar, an only child, had asked her lover Sk Moidul Alam alias Rippon to “teach her parents a lesson”. Rippon allegedly hired four goons from Howrah who accosted Mousumi’s father, Mohit, a retired Army officer, on the night of March 18, apparently to force him to accept the relationship. The soldier refused to give in and fought with the intruders, who stabbed and hacked him to death. Then they attacked his wife. The price of the double murder: 30,000.

Mousumi, who was in an upper floor all through the brutal slaying, called police a few hours later to claim robbers had raided the house and killed her parents. Police arrived to a gory scene at the Pandua Khannan address. Mohit and Lata lay soaked in blood.

Hooghly SP Tanmoy Roychowdhury said: “The girl’s account appeared unconvincing. She was in the floor above when her parents were murdered on the ground-floor. Though we were suspicious, we didn’t accost her immediately. Our suspicions were confirmed when we learnt from a source about her relationship with a Burdwan-based youth, which was the reason for quarrels within the family. When we interrogated the youth, he confessed to his role.”

Mousumi made a judicial confession before a Chinsurah magistrate on Tuesday, police said. She has not been arrested yet. Rippon and Rajesh Verma, the extortionist he had allegedly hired, have been sent to 14 days police custody.
