In a brutal incident, a 22-year-old man was allegedly thrashed to death in Rajasthan's Bikaner district by more than a half-dozen people including the father and cousin brothers of a woman from another community with whom he was romantically involved.

Saif Ali Khan was abducted by nearly half a dozen people on Tuesday. He was later brutally thrashed and dumped in a drain before being run over by a car.

Local police traced the victim and admitted him to a government hospital where he breathed his last.

Police have arrested three people, including the father and the three cousin brothers.

"The man was involved in a relationship with a woman. When the woman's family came to know about the affair, they fixed their marriage elsewhere, but the man was trying to make contact with her so they can elope", Sub-Inspector of Naya Shahar Police Station Bhajan Lal told PTI.

Meanwhile, the police refuted the 'communal' aspect of the case. "The case cannot be given a communal angle as the woman's family members were against her marrying outside their caste", said Bikaner Superintendent of Police (SP), Swai Singh Godara.
