In a disturbing incident, a 17-year-old Indian boy was allegedly beaten to death and his private parts were chopped off by his girlfriend's family.

The incident happened in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur on Friday, reported Zee News.

Their families had not given a green signal to their romance. To keep them apart, the boy, Saurabh Kumar, was even sent to a different location to study. He returned to town for his sister’s wedding. It was then that the girl’s brother, Sushant Pandey, called him to his house.

According to Kumar’s father, Pandey and others beat up his son and later threatened him. He added that his son and the girl had been in touch with each other, but the families did not agree to their relationship. He claimed that Pandey and others beat up his son after he was called by the former to his house. Pandey allegedly put a gun on Kumar's head and told him to sign a statement saying that he was handed over to them alive.

The main accused allegedly took the extreme step on Friday night after finding Kumar in his house with his sister. The girl's family was so furious that they allegedly thrashed Kumar brutally. The beating caused serious injuries, said police. Kumar was rushed to a hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries on Friday night itself, police shared. The following day, an FIR was filed at Kanti Police Station.

Rajesh Kumar, Superintendent of Police, Muzzafarpur (City), said that prima facie shows that the incident happened over an alleged love affair. He shared that a post mortem was being conducted and further information about the deceased's injuries would be revealed later.

Meanwhile, the victim's family performed a funeral in front of the house of the accused on Saturday. Pandey was later arrested in connection with Kumar's death.

Three people, identified as Ashok Thakur, Ranjit Kumar and Mukesh Kumar, were also arrested for allegedly attacking the house of the main accused, reported India Today.

An official said that following the incident, there is an atmosphere of tension in the village. In order to avoid any more incidents in future, police was patrolling the area. The deceased's family have been assured of speedy action, the official added.
