A couple was killed after allegedly being attacked with iron rods and sticks by their neighbors in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur district, police said.
The victims have been recognized as Abbas and his spouse, Kamrul Nisha, as stated by authorities. The event occurred August 18 in Rajeypur village, which falls within the jurisdiction of Hargaon Police Station of Sitapur.
Senior police officers appeared at the scene and began the investigation after getting the information.
According to officials, a probe into the incident has been opened, and the bodies have been transferred for post-mortem testing.
“The couple died on the spot in the attack, and all the accused fled,” Sitapur Superintendent of Police (SP), Chakresh Mishra, said.
According to SP Mishra, the incident was caused by a dispute over the fact that Abbas’s son had eloped with a girl from their neighbor’s family a few years prior.
“A case was registered in this, and Abbas’s son was sent to jail. When Abbas’s son was released from jail a few days back, there was again a dispute between the families,” he said.
