Rajkumar Chaurasia attacked his 20-year-old daughter Meenakshi with a knife, leading to her death
Mumbai Police have solved the murder of a pregnant woman, whose body was found on the sidewalk in the Ghatkopar area of Mumbai over the weekend. Investigating the death, Mumbai police arrested the woman's father.
Police said that 20-year-old Meenakshi Chaurasia was 4 months pregnant. Angered by her getting married against the wishes of the family, her father stabbed her to death, they said.
According to the police, Meenakshi went to Satna in Madhya Pradesh in February and got married to a man named Brajesh. Meenakshi's father Rajkumar had wanted her to marry a boy from Mumbai. But after the talk of a love marriage, Rajkumar became upset with his daughter.
Police said that Rajkumar was very angry because of Meenakshi's unexpected departure from the house and subsequent marriage. Although later he accepted the situation, he had warned Meenakshi to not come back to the village.
But despite this, Meenakshi came to the village to attend a function; her angry father asked her to meet him. When they met, Meenakshi tried to touch her father's feet, but Rajkumar stabbed her to death in a fit of rage.
