New Delhi, Jul 9 (PTI) A 20-year-old man was killed in northeast Delhi's Karawal Nagar by family members of a girl, with whom he was in a relationship, police said on Friday.
He has been identified as Deepak, a resident of Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat district, they said and added that the girl's father has been arrested.
On Thursday, the Karawal Nagar police station received information that a body has been spotted near a gym. When a team reached the spot, it found that there were injury marks all over the body, a senior officer said.
