In a shocking incident from Karnataka, a boy named Vijaya Kamble was killed on Wednesday in Kalaburagi allegedly by his girlfriend's brother, Shahbuddin, who did not approve of their inter-faith relationship. Kamble succumbed to bleeding on the spot. Kalaburagi SP Isha Pant informed that Shahbuddin had allegedly warned the deceased earlier to not talk to his sister. An FIR has now been registered in the case. This is yet such another shocking murder after a man was killed by his wife's brother in Hyderabad due to the relationship being inter-faith. 

While speaking exclusively to Republic, the Kalaburagi SP said, "He is a 28 year old boy. He was stabbed last night at 8 PM by Shahbuddin and his associate Nawaz. Shahbuddin is the brother of the girl who is the deceased's close friend.
