In yet another case of Love Jihad, Uttarakhand Roorkee Police has arrested three Muslim youths Haider, Sariq and Riyan on the charges of murdering a 19-year-old Nidhi Paswan after she refused a marriage proposal by Haider Ali. The Muslim youths barged into Nidhi’s home and slit her throat at Krishna Nagar street no-20 of Roorkee under Gangnahar Police Station on Saturday afternoon, April 24.
According to the reports, the trip slit opened the throat of Nidhi. However, Haider was caught red-handed by locals after. As the trio attempted to flee, the locals managed to catch Haider Ali after hearing the screams of Nidhi. A BBA student, Nidhi Paswan also worked at a beauty parlour.
Family members of the victim held a demonstration and demanded immediate arrest of the three accused after the incident. The two absconding accused Riyan and Sariq were nabbed from Rahimpur gate on Sunday morning.
The Police said Haider Ali was stalking Nidhi for over 3 years, but Nidhi didn’t show any interest in him. Miffed with rejection, Haider and his two friends broke-in to victim’s home and thrashed her before slitting her throat with a paper knife.
The incident refreshed the horrifying memory of 21-year-old Nikita Tomar, who was shot dead in broad daylight by Muslim youths outside Aggarwal College Ballabgarh, Faridabad in October 2020.
