'Love Commandos' reach out to stop honour killings

In the face of a spurt in the number of reported honour killings in the country, couples marrying against their family wishes and khap panchayat norms have a ray of hope as a novel civil society initiative is reaching out to protect them. 

Sirsa (Haryana): The bodies of a young man and woman were recovered from cotton fields in this Haryana district and police Sunday said they suspected it to be a case of honour killing.

The victims were identified as Inder Pal, 22, and Maya, 18, and they were said to be in a relationship for the last many months. Their bodies were found in the fields in Phoolkan village Friday night.

"Inder Pal and Maya were neighbours in Phoolkan village and they wanted to marryr. They went missing on the intervening night of Sep 17-18. Police found their decomposed bodies from the fields on Friday night," Devendar Singh, investigation officer of the case, told IANS Sunday.

"It seems they were hit by some hard object or a baton to kill them. We suspect a honour killing and we are recording the statements of their family members. We have also gathered some clues from the crime spot and very soon we will arrest the accused," Singh said.

Maya was a Class 11 student whereas Inder Pal was a labourer in the fields. Their family members were against their relationship and Inder was forcibly married to another girl two months back.

Maya's brother Brij Lal, however, alleged that his sister was abducted by Inder's family.

Brij Lal said: "Inder's family members abducted Maya while we had gone to attend a religious function. We are sure that they killed my sister."

Picture of the Day

Due to the threats of riot and terror attacks, the festive season in India nowadays results in sleepless nights for the security personnel. Against this backdrop, the show of communal harmony in Malegaon by Ajantha Mandal cannot be more timely. The Mandal in a large hoarding portrays the real picture of the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra. It shows, Malegaon is where Azan in a Masjid and Shunkh in a Mandir go simultaneously. To further make its point, the Mandal plays communal harmony songs on a cassette-player in its full sound.
