UP honour killing: Police arrest prime accused
The victim's wife Mehwish had alleged that the murder was orchestrated by her family who had opposed her marriage to Hakim.

Bulandshahr: In a major breakthrough in the murder of Abdul Hakim, the Uttar Pradesh police on Thursday arrested the prime accused Salman in the suspected honour killing case in Bulandshahr.

Announcing his arrest, SSP Gulab Singh said two country-made pistols were also recovered from his possession. "We have arrested the prime accused Salman in the Abdul Hakim murder case. Two country-made pistols were also recovered from his possession," Singh said on Thursday.

Police suspect the arms recovered from him were used in the crime, he added. Hakim, who had married a girl Mahvish against her parents' wishes, had revealed threats to his life from girl's family members during his appearance in Bollywood actor Amir Khan's TV show 'Satyamev Jayate'.

His killing had drawn widespread criticism, compelling the Central government to seek report from the Uttar Pradesh government over the issue.
