ZEE5’s original film Raat Baaki Hai revolves around two ex-lovers Vasuki (Paoli Dam) and Kartik (Annup Sonii) and the murder of Kartik’s fiancée. Kartik is running from the cops as he is one of the prime suspects and on his way comes across Vasuki. Later its is revealed that it was Vasuki who killed Kartik’s fiancée and pinned the blame on him. While this may sound so filmy, it’s not really! We came across many real-life cases where ex-lovers just like Vasuki have committed crimes in a fit of rage.
Interestingly, an NCRB report shows that murder due to love affair has increased by 28% between 2001 and 2017. In states like Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab and Maharashtra statistics show that love affair has been one of the prime motives of the crime. Love triangles and illicit affairs are major reasons for these criminal activities and denying their existence completely would be factually incorrect. To elaborate on the same, here are some of the incidents when culprits committed crimes against their ex-lovers.
