Telangana police have arrested Subhash Sharma, a contract killer, from Bihar in connection with the murder of a Dalit youth in Telangana’s Miryalguda, allegedly for marrying an upper caste girl.
The accused allegedly attacked 24-year-old Perumalla Pranay Kumar from behind with a machete while he was leaving the hospital in Nalgonda district, along with his wife on September 14.
He was produced in a court and handed over to Telangana Police on transit remand.
Pranay Kumar, 23, was hacked to death on Friday as he was coming out of a hospital along with his wife Amrutha Varshini, with whom he had an inter-caste marriage.
They were in love since their school days and had married against the wishes of the girl's parents. Since then, he was facing threats to his life.
