After an FIR was filed, both the accused have been charged under section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code. On Friday, both of them were produced in court and have been sent to the police custody, the police said.

Earlier in June, a similar incident of suspected honour killing took place in the national capital where a 23-year-old man was killed in Dwarka’s Ambarhai village. The victim was identified as Vinay Dahiya, who had sustained four bullet injuries that resulted in his death. His wife Kiran Dahiya was also shot five times.

Investigators pointed out the women’s brother as the alleged mastermind behind his husband’s murder. The women’s brother was identified as Aman Dahiya by the police. He was arrested four years ago in another murder case, the police said.

A CCTV footage had shown three men travelling in an SUV to kill the couple.  24-year-old Vinay and 19-year-old Kiran eloped and got married last year in August.
