A jobless suitor in a Maharashtra village stabbed a man to death after he rejected him his daughter's hand in marriage, police said here on Saturday.
Amol K. Shinde wanted to take his father's consent on this. However, when the senior Shinde dismissed Surnar's proposal on the basis of his current unemployed status, the suitor was enraged.
Surnar along with four of his friends mounted an attack on the Shinde household and demanded answers.
But before the father could respond, he was attacked with a long sharp knife repeatedly, killing him on the spot.
When Shinde's relative rushed and attempted to intervene, Surnar injured him, too.
Bhujang D. Shinde is recuperating in a Nanded hospital, Ingole added.
