Jaipur: In a suspected case of honor killing, a Keralite engineer was shot dead by his wife's relatives here on Wednesday.
Amith Nair, a native of Pathanamthitta, was murdered at his house by a gang who also tried to forcefully take his wife Mamta along with them.
Local residents stopped the gang's attempt to take Mamta, who is pregnant, with them without her consent.
The police said Mamta's relatives had been trying to take her home ever since the couple got married two years ago. The police said they suspect the murder to be a case of honor killing as Amit married Mamta without her family's consent.
