Hyderabad: National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) has taken suo motu cognizance of the murder of a Dalit youth by wife's family on a busy road in Hyderabad.

NCSC secretary Kaushal Kumar asked the government to submit an action taken report giving full details of the crime, FIR filed, those arrested and compensation given to the family of the victim.

The victim was a 26 ­year old car salesman.

Seeking the information within the stipulated time either through fax or mail, Kumar said the commission will seek personal appearance of officers if they do not head to the notices.

A newlywed man was brutally murdered by his wife's brother and his friend at Saroor Nagar of Rachakonda commissionerate on Wednesday night. The accused stabbed the victim while his wife managed to flee the spot. The victim and his wife belong to different faiths and got married in January 2022. The victim in his mid-20s belonging to Vikarabad district and the girl in her early 20s, from the city got married against the wishes of their families. They were staying in a rented house at Saroor Nagar.

B Nagaraju was attacked by the brother of Syed Ashrin Sulthana. Her brother is among two people arrested so far. The incident has raised fresh concerns about the safety of interfaith couples.

In heartbreaking visuals shared on social media, a devastated Sulthana was seen standing on a road staring at her husband's body. B Nagaraju reportedly died on the spot after the couple was brutally attacked with iron rods.

Sulthana tried hard to save her husband. She cried for help but nobody came forward to save her husband. "Nagaraju was beaten by five members at the signal. I begged everyone to let us go. He was killed in front of everyone. Can't the world see? At the signal, I requested people for help. I tried to save Nagaraju. But there were five other people pushing me away and other people were beating him. He was wearing a helmet but despite that, they kept assaulting him," she said.
