On the directives of a local court, the police has filed a case of kidnapping against relatives of a rape victim, who went missing and is suspected to be killed in the name of honour.

An FIR has been filed against Brahampal and Baleshwari, the victim's uncle and aunt, on the directives of the court, after the girl failed to appear in the court in May this year, Deputy SP Shiva Ram said.

According to police officials, the girl had eloped with her boyfriend Dinesh in 1996. The couple was later traced following which a case of abduction and rape was registered against Dinesh by her family.

When the case came up for hearing 14 years later in May this year, the girl was found missing with the police suspecting that she was killed for 'honour' by her family.

The case against Dinesh and three other accused will come up for hearing on October 4, 2010.
