In another case of honour killing, a 23-year-old boy and his newlywed wife from another community were set ablaze by the girl's family in Ahmednagar. The boy later succumbed to his injuries when he was being treated at a hospital-based in Pune. Mangesh was a resident of Naghot, which is located in Ahmednagar. Assistant Police Inspector Jayant Patil of Bund Garden police station said, "Around a month ago, Mangesh got married to his girlfriend Rukhmini whose family hails from Uttar Pradesh. On May 1, she went to visit her parents at her maternal house."

He added, " When her husband Mangesh came to receive her, an argument broke out between him and the family after which the suspect threw kerosene and fuel on the duo and set them on fire. According to a statement given by Rukmini, the case seems to be that of honour killing as Mangesh belonged to a lower caste while Rukhmini was from a different community."
