According to a complaint lodged by the victim's wife Sonia, the 26-year-old man visited his in-laws house on September 18 and was missing since then.

A case was registered against the woman's four family members, including her two brothers, Circle Officer Hariram Yadav said.

Manoj and Sonia belonged to different castes and had married against the wishes of the woman's family, he said. Meanwhile, security has been tightened in the village to avoid any untoward incident, Yadav said.
