A man was arrested by a special task force (STF) in Gurugram for gunning down a local BJP leader for having a love marriage with his sister, police said on Friday.
Identified as Chaman alias Pawan, the accused had joined a gang to take revenge.


According to STF, the accused, also the brother-in-law of the slain BJP leader Sukhbir Khatana alias Sukhi, confessed that he took the extreme step owing to a rivalry that developed after Khatana's love marriage with his sister.

"It was in 2008 when Sukhbir had a love marriage with my sister Pushpa after which I had developed a rivalry against him. To eliminate Sukhbir I came in touch with gangster Vikram alias Papla Gujjar in 2010-11 and started working for the gang" the accused told police.


"I hatched a conspiracy to kill Sukhbir, along with gangster Papla and other associates and finally gunned down him," he added.
