One more held, victimís wife junks cops claim

Bulandshahr SSP Gulab Singh claimed it's not a case of honour killing. He denied Hakim or his wife visited police officials in Bulandshahr, and said that Hakim had filed a petition in the high court in 2011, requesting for security. The court had asked him to meet the concerned police officials, but Hakim never visited any police official, said the SSP. He said that Hakim's murder was the result of a fight between his brother Khairu's son Salman and Asif's employee, also named Salman, on July 6 last year. The case was in the court and Asif's employee Salman was pressuring Khairu for a compromise. Hakim had slapped Salman's mother on November 22 after a heated exchange; Salman shot him the same evening, said the SSP.
