He was going to go to the groom’s house and they had a dispute and he left the girl’s house to go and pick up some clothes,” said an officer.”
His wife was at the door with her baby, and when he went to the house, she told him that he needed to come back home,” the officer said.”
I then went to her house and found the baby with a broken arm and bleeding.
She told me that he had been killed.”

The man was arrested at the scene and is currently in custody.
The case is one of a number of hate crimes against minorities in India.
