Nitish Katara was abducted from the wedding of his classmate in Ghaziabad in February 2002 by cousins, Vikas and Vishal Yadav His abductors had observed Katara was friendly with Vikas' sister Bharti Yadav, and were allegedly opposed to this friendshp. With the help of a hired killer, Sukhdev Pehalwan, the duo " took Nitish home, then to an unknown place where they killed him and dumped his body" The murder was considered an honour killing, but a Supreme Court judge ruled that it was not, also that it could not be categorised as a crime that warrented the death penalty. The Delhi High Court sentenced the two Yadavs and Pehalwan to a 30-year jail term without remission.
