Delhi Police on Wednesday released photographs of the three alleged accused in the suspected honour killing case of an inter-caste couple and their relative and decided to announce cash rewards for anyone providing information about the trio.

DCP (North West Delhi) N S Bundela said cash rewards will be given to anyone providing information about Mandeep (23), Ankit (22) and Nakul alias Nikku (21) -- who allegedly murdered Monica along with her husband Kuldeep on Sunday for marrying in another caste.

However, the amount for the cash rewards has not been fixed, he said.

The trio is also allegedly involved in the killing of 22-year-old Shobha, a cousin of Monica. Police had on Tuesday recovered the body of Shobha, who too had eloped with a man belonging to a different caste.

All the three are suspected victims of honour killing. Police feel that the perpetrators of the crime could have been enraged over the inter-caste marriages in the family, which apparently started with Monica, 24, who was followed by her cousin sister Shobha.

Ankit is brother of Monica while Mandeep is her cousin. Shobha is Mandeep's sister. Mandeep and Ankit are absconding and police suspect the involvement of both in Shobha's murder.
