Ankit Saxena murder: Father wants death penalty for accused, Kejriwal meets him

Ankit Saxena

Ankit Saxena was murdered on Friday, reportedly because his alleged girlfriend's family opposed her relationship as the two belonged to different communities. "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.

Meanwhile, to prevent any untoward incident, the security around the accused and victims's family has been beefed up and the regular patrolling by the Delhi Police officers of DCP rank is going on.

There were also some who appreciated Ankit's family asking people to not communalise the issue despite facing such a tragedy. 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. "I have nothing against any religion", He also said that not all Muslims can be tarred with the same brush and it would be wrong to generalise the incident.
