The woman's family was opposed to the marriage as Rohtas belonged to a different community.
Kiran was found dead under suspicious circumstances in the village on February 9 last year. She was hastily cremated by the family.
Rohtas later complained to the police alleging that Kiran was a victim of honor killing.
Following this, the police arrested Ashok for the death of Kiran.
