Muzzafarpur: A 17-year-old boy in Bihar’s Muzzafarpur was beaten to death and his genitals were cut off by the family of the girl he was allegedly having an affair with.
The families of the two did not approve of their relationship, after which the boy’s father sent him to the city to study.

“The girl and the boy have been talking to each other. When the families don`t agree to the match, we sent our boy to another city for work. He was in town for his sister`s marriage when the incident happened. Sushant Pandey called Saurabh to his house and along with others beat him. Later, he called me and put a pistol on my ear to make me sign a statement saying Saurabh was handed over to us alive,” the deceased’s father was quoted as saying by ANI.
