Assassination : They fell in love and eloped, but their love was of no consequence for members of their communities, for whom marrying outside their caste was a far graver crime. police believe that Rajiv Verma and his girlfriend Renu Pal were stoned to death by a mob of about 200 people, including many of the girl’s relatives.
The couple were murdered apparently because of the mob’s “shame” that Renu, a student, should fall in love with her teacher, who came from a lower social group or caste.
The police said that community leaders had warned the couple to break off their relationship, but three days before their deaths, they ran off together.
