A 28-year-old man was Monday found dead in a ditch on the outskirts of Vadodara after allegedly being abducted by two men whose sister had reportedly eloped with the deceased earlier, police said.
Dilip Vanzara's body was found Monday in a ditch along national highway 8 and his father, Khatubhai, has alleged that brothers Naresh and Pravin Thakre had kidnapped and killed his son, said a Makarpura police station official.
The siblings were arrested late Monday evening, he added. "The father in his complaint has stated that Vanzara was abducted late Sunday night while he was returning to his home in Danteshwar locality here and later strangled to death by the accused," the official said.
"Apparently the deceased had eloped with the sister of the accused three months ago. The woman later returned to her parents. We are verifying these details," the official added.
A case has been registered against the accused based on the Khatubhai's complaint and further probe was underway, he added.
