“I want her. I can’t live without her. I loved her with all my heart but she tried to go for someone else,” the arrested boyfriend has told the police amidst crying.

Investigations revealed that the boyfriend was afraid that his girlfriend would leave him for another person and therefore, he has imposed restrictions on her. He also forbade her to talk to other male students and men.
