Honour Killings Continue in Harayana
The saga of honour killings is indeed sad. Not a month has passed since the court sentenced five members of a Khap Panchayat for the honour killing of Manoj and Babli and the following is reported in Times of India.
"Honour killings in Haryana claimed two more lives as the brother of a 16-year-old girl strangled her to death for being involved with a boy of the same village, on Thursday. A day after the girl was killed, the boy committed suicide in school.
"Rakesh Kashyap [the unfortunate lover of the girl], 18, was found hanging from a tree in his school in Bhainswal village of Sonepat district."
