A 19-year-old college student was beaten to death in north Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar earlier this week by family and friends of a woman he was in a relationship with, the police said on Friday. According to investigating officers, the woman’s family did not approve of their relationship. Though the teenager, Rahul Kumar, was rescued from the assault, which took place on Wednesday, he succumbed to his injuries at a hospital the next morning. The police have registered a case of murder and have arrested two adults and apprehended three minors. The five include the woman’s younger brother, relatives and friends. “They have all been booked for murder,” said Vijayanta Arya, deputy commissioner of police (north-west). Kumar lived with his parents and a younger sister in Adarsh Nagar and was pursuing a BA course from Delhi University’s School of Open Learning (SOL). He would also give tuitions to supplement his family’s income, which was largely reliant on his father’s earnings as a taxi driver. Kumar’s uncle, Dharampal, said that about two months ago, his family got to know about his relationship with an 18-year-old woman who lives in nearby Jahangirpuri. “My nephew would give her English tuitions at a coaching centre,” said Dharampal, who is also a taxi driver.
