Her family's quest for truth demystifies the Dalit singer's death

Her familys quest for truth demystifies the Dalit singers death

New Delhi: Police arrested two men for kidnapping and murder of a civil defence volunteer and YouTube star in Delhi.

The Indian Express reported the trajectory of events leading to her violent death, and recovery of her body on Monday.

Her family alongside Bhim Army members staged a protest alleging that the Dalit woman was gang raped and assaulted.

She was running a YouTube channel gaining views before she began performing at shows in the local circuit, according to the report.

Everything was going great for her until she disappeared two weeks ago when her family last saw her last on May 11.

Her father reportedly said she was going to record a video but she would not return.

She often went to Haryana for concerts and shows, the father said. Distraught, he searched for her everywhere before approaching the Delhi Police on May 13.

The police allegedly asked him to leave and later a friend of hers had her Gmail account logged in his device.

This helped the family trace her last active location at a restaurant at Meham in Haryana on May 16.

The Dalit singer's sister and the father managed to get access to the CCTV footage at the restaurant.

The clipping showed a woman, accompanied by a man in a yellow shirt, stepping out of a white car unsteadily.

Leaving the family in despair, police found her body buried near a highway in Rohtak on Monday.

On Tuesday, her family and some Bhim Army workers protested alleging gang rape and assault.

Police said that gang rape was yet to be proved but believed that she was drugged, kidnapped and strangled.

Two men in their 20s, identified as Ravi and Anil, have been arrested. Both men work at a finance company as helpers.

The victim had already lodged a rape case against Ravi.

The two accused reportedly revealed the place where they had buried her.

Ravi and the singer were said to be in relationship three years ago. He would go on harassing her even after the breakup.

The accused allegedly spiked her drink with sleeping pills before taking her for a meal at the restaurant.

After the meal they reportedly strangled to death in the car.

The Indian Express quoted Deputy Commissioner of Police Shankar Choudhary as saying that a case of kidnapping was registered based on the family's complaint.

He added that police arrested two accused from Meham in Haryana on Sunday.
