Basai Darapur Murder Case
It had all begun while the businessman and his 22-year-old daughter were returning home on a motorcycle after visiting a hospital. “Three or four drunk youngsters, who often harass women, were blocking the entrance to our lane. When my uncle asked them to move, they made lewd comments about my cousin. When my uncle protested, one of them began touching her hair,” the nephew of the businessman said.
The 52-years-old businessman decided to drop his daughter home and return to confront the harassers. “My cousin begged her father not to go, but he thought he could convince the father of the youngsters to keep them in check,” the nephew said.
The businessman’s objection/complaint snowballed into a confrontation and the three siblings and their father allegedly stabbed him multiple times. When the businessman’s son intervened, he was also stabbed.
