Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday met the family members of Ankit Saxena, who was stabbed to death in west Delhi's Khyala area on February 1. Kejriwal had on Sunday spoken to Ankit's father Yashpal Saxena and assured the family that his government would make all possible efforts to ensure they get justice.
The 23-year-old Ankit was stabbed to death by the family members of his girlfriend, whom he had been dating for three years. He was murdered in the most brutal fashion even as his parents begged and pleaded before the killers, the eyewitnesses told the police. Ankit Saxena was in love with a woman called Shehzadi. Her parents were opposed to the relationship.
The Ankit Saxena murder was meticulously planned by his girlfriend's mother, the probe revealed. She had intentionally created a road rage like situation before killing the Delhi photographer.
"We want justice. Murderers of my son should get the death sentence. I am an ordinary man and I have no resources to fight the case. If the Delhi government helps us in getting best advocates and making a strong case, I will be thankful," reports quoted Ankit's father as saying.
All four accused were sent to judicial custody on Saturday in connection with the case.
