According to Dainik Jagran, the brother of the woman, Salem had called Sanjay to meet him on 16 August, after which he went missing. The woman’s father and a neighbour, along with her brother, have been arrested and have confessed to the crime.

An officer from Dabua police station told Swarajya that the body had decayed, suggesting the murder happened a few days ago. "The body has been sent to Rohtak PGI. We are awaiting the post-mortem report," he said.

The couple had eloped a year ago and were forced to get divorced by the woman's family two months ago, reported News18.

In a similar incident in February, Ankit Saxena, a professional photographer, was stabbed to death in the Khyala area allegedly by family members of a Muslim woman. The woman's family had opposed her relationship with Ankit as the two belonged to different communities.
