Fatehabad: In another case of dishonour 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 on 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 dishonour killing," the police official added.
In the last few months, many cases of dishonour killing have rocked different parts of Haryana.
