Police said that the victim, identified as Rinku Solanki (21), committed suicide by hanging herself on the roof of tea and snacks stall along the road owned by Sultan Baloch, a relative of his lover Sameer Baloch.
Rinku came to know about Sameer's religious identity after Sameer's engagement with the Muslim religion of the woman.
"In his statement, Rinku's father Dahiya Solanki said that Sameer had friendship with Rinku while presenting him as a Dalit youth. However, when he came to know that Sameer is a Muslim, he got involved in it. Nevertheless, Sameer kept harassing him by threatening him. Tired of this, he decided to take a drastic step, "said R P Jadeja, sub-inspector of Wankaner city police station.
Meanwhile, police investigation found that Rinku had chosen Sultan's stall to commit suicide as he and Sameer used to meet there. "He came on the stall and called Sameer and asked him to come there. When Samir arrived at the spot, he found Rinku hanged.
"When we reached there, we could not find Samir but his family members were present there. Police inspector Jadeja said that he had put Rinku dead on a cot and told him that he had committed suicide.
However, after being suspected by Dahiya that her daughter has been strangled, the police sent her dead body to post-mortem and other forensic examination to Rajkot Civil Hospital, whose report is being awaiting.
"Only after the PM report comes out that it will be known that Rinku was murdered or he committed suicide. Meanwhile, we launched a manhunt for Sameer, "the police said.
Many local people suspect that both Sultan and Sameer had sexually assaulted the girl many times before hanging her body after throating.
"The tea stall, the special crime scene, was not a secluded place. The main accused's Muslim brothers and family friends were also present there. Perhaps the main accused made a total conspiracy The event could not be in one minute. Then what did they do when the Dalit woman ended her life or actually killed her, "the locals questioned.
Why did the mainstream media ruckle many times in the Kathua rape and murder or Dalit laxity, why do they keep for the suspected exploitation and murder of a Dalit woman? We find a clue because the culprits are Muslims here. The mainstream media and the so-called intellectuals and voting mung political parties have set their policy to speak anything against the Muslims!
