Haryana honour killing

In another case of honour killing in Haryana, a 28-year-old man was shot dead by his wife's brother as he hailed from a different caste, police say.

The shooting took place at Tohana town late Thursday, said police. The killed man was identified as Sukhbir Singh, a resident of Rajgarh village in Jind district.

"Sukhbir married Kirandeep Kaur in May this year. Kirandeep was from a different caste and her parents were against the marriage. We have arrested Jagjit Singh, Kirandeep's brother, and another youth for murdering Sukhbir," a police official said Friday.

"Sukhbir ran a cable network business. Jagjit Singh had come in a car and blocked Sukhbir's way as he was going towards Hisar on a motorcycle. After firing at Sukhbir, they also ran the car over him. It is a clear case of honour killing," the police official added.

In the last few months, many cases of honour killing have been reported from different parts of Haryana.
