Living and Loving in West Delhi

Living and Loving in West Delhi

On February 1 at Raghubir Nagar, a 23-year-old photographer — Ankit Saxena — got into an altercation with his girlfriend’s family who disapproved of their “relationship”. He was stabbed to death, allegedly by the father and maternal uncle of the 18-year-old woman, who belongs to a minority community. The police arrested the woman’s father, mother and a maternal uncle; her 16-year-old brother has been sent to a correctional home and the girl put in a shelter. In this west Delhi neighbourhood, inter-faith couples look back at their love stories and confess that what the heart wants sometimes comes at a cost.
