“Saurabh Kumar (17) of village Rampur, died on Friday night during treatment after he was beaten.

Police acted swiftly and arrested Sushant Pandey, who is the prime accused of killing Saurabh Kumar,” said the statement.
Meanwhile, the father of the deceased informed ANI that Sushant intimidated him and his family.
“The girl and the boy have been talking to each other. When the families don’t agree to the match, we sent our boy to another city for work. He was in town for his sister’s marriage when the incident happened. Sushant Pandey (brother of the girl involved in the love affair) called Saurabh to his house and along with others beat him. Later, he called me and put a pistol on my ear to make me sign a statement saying Saurabh was handed over to us alive,” said the deceased’s father.
