A man reportedly slit the throat of his girlfriend's father for refusing his proposal to marry his daughter in Thane, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India earlier this month.

The accused, identified as Pappukumar Shah, a resident of Bihar, India, was reportedly in a relationship with the daughter of his neighbor Kamaljit Sande, 52. However, when Shah finally expressed his desire to marry Sande's daughter, the patriarch bluntly refused his proposal.

After getting rejected by Sande, Shah apologized and told the victim that he respects his decision. After the rejection, Shah started to get more friendly with Sande and invited him for a party at a remote location on March 4 earlier this month, Hindustan Times reported.

During the party, however, when Sande and Shah got really drunk, the suspect allegedly lured him to a compound in a remote area in Bhiwandi rural and proceeded to slit his throat and kill the patriarch. Sande's family members who were awaiting his return subsequently called Shah and enquired about the father's whereabouts. When Sande's daughter asked Shah to tell the truth, he told her that her father will never come back home.

Following the incident, Bhiwandi Rural police launched an investigation into the murder and recovered the body of the deceased.

On March 13, a team of police officers from Bhiwandi Rural police station found Shah at his village and arrested him. Shah was later produced in the court and remanded to custody till March 19.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian man has been accused of viciously bludgeoning to death with a machete a woman he loved, right in front of the victim's own mother, for rejecting his proposal in Guwahati, Assam, India, Latin Times reported.

The accused, identified as Sanjay Lalung, was reportedly in love with the victim, Marami Tanti, and expressed his love for her several times. However, frustrated by the victim's constant rejection, Lalung, in a fit of rage, allegedly dragged Tanti out from a vehicle, slashed her with a machete, and proceeded to murder her in front of her mother out of anger.

On the day of the brutal slaying, Lalung reportedly visited Tanti's residence unannounced. After seeing Tanti and her mother approaching the residence in their car, he walked up to the two before proceeding to drag the victim out of the vehicle and attack her with a machete. Tanti was reported dead at the scene. After killing the woman, the accused fled from the crime scene in his car.

He was later tracked down and arrested by the Satgaon police.
