A Dalit youth who fell in love and married a caste Hindu girl was found murdered on a field here on Thursday. Police have arrested the girl’s father and brother in this connection.

The victim, R Parthiban (25), of Puthu Colony at Alampatti Road in Perambalur, and P Ochammal (20) of the same area fell in love three years back.

Parthiban was running an ice-cream factory at Chettikulam in Perambalur and Ochammal’s father, Palani, is a snack vendor. The girl’s brother is a construction worker.

In April this year, the girl eloped with Parthiban, who married her with support of his friends. When the marriage came to the knowledge of Ochammal’s family, they refused to admit the couple in their house. Besides, whenever the girl’s family members came across Parthiban, they used abusive words and threatened him. Sources said, a few days back, the girl’s father went to Parthiban’s shop and threatened him.
