That’s why the girl refused to marry
According to the information, the caste of the girl and her lover were different. Being from a different caste, the girl’s family members were not ready for the marriage. The 28-year-old accused lover attacked her with a knife outside her office at Murugeshpalya in East Bengaluru on Tuesday evening, the DCP said.
Police said the girl worked at Omega Healthcare Management Services Pvt Ltd in Murugeshpalya. At the same time, accused Dinkar Banala is an employee of a healthcare company located in Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh. Leela lived in a PG in JB Nagar, while Dinakar lived in Domlur.
The affair of both was going on for the last 5 years.
DCP (East) Bhimashankar S Guled said the incident of murder took place around 7.30 pm. Preliminary investigation has revealed that Dinkar and Leela were with each other for the last five years. Dinkar and Leela first met at a healthcare firm. Both used to work here together. After meeting and talking for a few months, the two later fell in love. Both had decided to get married but the family of the girl was not ready for the marriage as the boy belonged to another caste.
Leela tells Dinkar that her family will not agree to the marriage and she cannot go against her family’s decision. The accused was angry with this. On Tuesday evening, accused Dinkar reached outside his girlfriend’s office and started waiting for her outside. When Leela left her office in the evening, there was an argument between the two. Meanwhile, the accused took out a knife and publicly attacked his girlfriend with a sharp knife.
