A 40-year-old man was stabbed to death by a group of people, near Danilimda crossroads late on Friday night. Investigators said the perpetrators suspected the deceased of having had an incestuous affair with his niece. Police rounded up the accused.
"Affair" implies this was consensual sex between them, rather than an assault. As we'll see, this is not about an adult molesting a related child.
According to Danilimda police, Rekha Vasava, a resident of Khodiarnagar, registered a complaint against her husband Mukesh, brothers-in-law Ravi and Jagdish and with two others — Bhikha and Ramesh — for the killing of her uncle, Rupsingh Thakor, 40. All the accused are residents of Khodiarnagar. The incident took place in Khodiarnagar at 9.45pm on Friday when a group led by Mukesh confronted Thakor and stabbed him while the others beat him up.
"During questioning, the accused claimed they suspected Rekha had an affair with Thakor for some time," said a Danilimda police official.
Even though the headline said the murder was due to incest, it appears to me that, like so many other murders, it was done because of a cheating affair.
Isn't it curious how this story was reported?
This blog does support open relationships, polyamory, and ethical nonmonogamy in general. It does not support cheating. However, murder is not the answer to cheating.
