In an alleged incident of honour killing, a married woman who had eloped with a Dalit man was beaten to death, and her body was burnt, by the family members.

The horrific incident took place on October 20 at village Lehar in the district.

The woman, Guddi alias Bhoori (30), who had four kids, had eloped with a sweeper named Kamal, her neighbour, on October 2.

Her family members found her on October 20. She was beaten to death and then hung from a tree. Her body was set on fire.
