MP: BJP-youth shoots self to prove his love for female-friend
A 30-year-old leader of the BJP's youth wing is in a critical condition after he allegedly shot himself outside the residence of his female friend to prove his love for her, police said today. Bhartiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader, Atul Lokhande, took the step as he wanted to marry his 27-year-old friend. Lokahande is currently undergoing treatment in a hospital, police said.
Incident occurred when Lokhande went to meet woman's father
The incident occurred last night when Lokhande went to meet the woman's father at their home. After a heated argument between the two, Lokhande came out and shot himself in the temple. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where his condition was critical. Bhopal Superintendent of Police (SP) South, Rahul Lodha, said, "Police have registered a case and further investigation is going on."
Lokhande posted a long message on Facebook before the act
In a Facebook post by Lokhande, he said that the woman's father asked him to come to their house in Shivaji Nagar area and prove his love for his daughter. "If I survived, he would let me marry her. I am at her residence, take me away from here (if I die). If I survive, I will come back on my own," he said.
Lokhande expressed his undying love for the woman on Facebook
"No one loves you like I do. Truth is that I don't want to forget you. I will love you forever. Till I die and even after that. All lovers give their heart, but only I will give my life," Lokhande said in his post.
Have been in relationship for 13 years, claims Lokhande
"I won't be able to live without you, therefore, I am going," Lokhande added in his post. He also posted nearly 40 photos of himself with the woman and claimed that they were in a relationship for the last 13 years and had even got married. "The more inter-caste and inter-religious marriages happen, the more powerful India will become," the BJYM leader said further.
