In the aftermath of the murder of Ankit Saxena -- a 23-year-old, who was allegedly killed by the family of a girl, Shehzadi, because the two were in a relationship -- while eyewitnesses have recounted the horror of what happened to Saxena, his family has requested the people of Delhi to not use his murder to start a riot.

Much hate mongering was seen on social media in the days following Saxena's murder. But amid heated discussions on Twitter and Facebook, Saxena's family has called for peace.

Saxena's cousin Ashish Duggal said, "This is not about two communities and I request the people and media to not give the incident a communal angle. We don't want Delhi to turn

into Kasganj over Ankit."

Duggal also hoped that a fast-track court would be set up and those responsible for Saxena's death would be punished.

Duggal's comments come amid tight security in Raghubir Nagar in West Delhi's Khyala. Units of the paramilitary forces are still on vigil.

Residents of the area are still living in fear. Even the extended family of the woman involved in the case are facing problems.

The police have so far arrested the girl's parents and uncle for the murder.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kerjiwal took to Twitter on Sunday condemning the incident.
