The body of Amboji Naresh, 23, who was missing since May 15 from Bhongir town of Nalgonda district after marrying an upper caste girl, has been found in a field owned by his wife T Swati’s father T Srinivas Reddy. Police have arrested Srinivas Reddy for allegedly kidnapping and stabbing Naresh to death and setting his body on fire. His charred body was found this morning by police who arrested Reddy’s brother and nephew also.

Police had launched a search for Naresh on May 15 after his father, Amboji Venkatiah, lodged a missing complaint. Naresh who belongs to a BC community and Swati, who hailed from Reddy community, had eloped and got married at Mumbai on March 25.

They fell in love while they were studying at a college at Valigonda in Nalgonda district. As she belonged to an upper caste and her father would have not approved, the couple eloped to Mumbai and got married there. They lived there in a slum in Vikroli until Swati’s father contacted her and invited them to come home. After Swati’s father agreed to accept the marriage, the newly-married couple had come to their village on May 11.

On May 16, Swati committed suicide in the bathroom of her parents’ house in Lingarajapalli village while Naresh who was supposed to go to his grandparents house in neighbouring Pallerla village went missing.

      We have to imagine India without Myslims, there will be always fighting between communities for not only duebto marriage and violation of civil code of conduct and suprimacy among Hindus. Imagine the fate of Dalith, the govt. Policy of reservation isbonly because to protect these Dalit not to convert to Islam. As long as are part of Hinduism they never get respected social life and had toblive their life undignified.

            Governance has nothing to do with this dude, these things cannot be changed, even if someone tries, he will be an outcast. You know what I am talking about right. Poor Souls may the souls be united in their after life. God Bless.

            What a tragedy! RIP Swati and Naresh. It is completely incomprehensible why a father would go that enraged to resort to murder his own daughter and son in-law. As they say " love is blind", it doesn't know castes, religions or ethnicity. But, if as a parent one cannot stomach has one's child's choice of marriage, one does not worth to have children. In this case, the father simply could not handle scorn from his pals and to preserve his pride decided to snuff his own child's life. What a devil's reincarnate! Caste has value neither to him nor to his family because the lives of young young couple were cut short brutally and he and his accomplices will remain in jail for the rest of their lives if they are not sent to the gallows. This should not be forgotten lightly as it is a symptomatic for the social problems prevai in the country and the young couples' legacy should be used to help the abolition of caste system practice once for all in over India May their souls rest in peace
