Malineni Dileep and his Scottish girlfriend made all possible efforts to get approval of their parents for their marriage.
But all their attempts to get the parents’ nod went in vain and led to Dileep’s murder by the girl’s brother.
According to family sources, Dileep (27) fell in love with a 24-year-old Scot girl, who stayed close to Dileep’s residence.
He soon befriended her and one day, proposed for marriage.
The trouble began then.
“The girl tried to convince her parents while Dileep sought his parent’s permission.
But the answer was negative from both sides,” sources said.
Dileep even met the girl’s parents to convince them, but to no avail.
“We sent you to study there so that you could make a decent living. Instead, you fell in love, that too with a foreigner,” was how Dileep’s family members reacted, which upset him further.
His parents asked him to return to Guntur immediately.
“He requested his brother, Malineni Manoj, an employee at a corporate hospital in Hyderabad, to convince his parents for marriage,” sources said.
On October 5, Dileep once again discussed the matter with his lover and, on the same day, was shot dead in his house by her brother.
Lingaraopalem, a village in Yedlapau mandal in Guntur district to which Dileep belonged, was shocked to receive the news of his death.
Several villagers gathered at Dileep’s house to console his grandfather Malineni Veeranjaneyulu, while Dileep’s father Malineni Srinivasa Rao and mother Vijaya came to Hyderabad to receive the body.
It is expected to arrive on October 17.
They are reportedly in touch with the authorities in Scotland.
According to his family members, Dileep left for Scotland four years ago for his Master of Science in Computers.
He had completed his B Tech in Hyderabad eight years ago.
After completing his course, he worked as a production manager in Sub-way company in Scotland for one year, his close relative V Hanumantha Rao said.
