Thirteen booked for suspected honour killing
Chandigarh: Thirteen people have been booked
in a suspected case of honour killing of an upper caste youth
who had an affair with a Dalit girl, police said on Sunday.
28-year-old Krishan Nain`s body was recovered from a
canal in Hisar`s Adampur on Tuesday, they said.
Police said Nain, a resident of Amargarh village in Jind
district, had first met the Dalit girl at a marriage function
two years ago.
The couple recently decided to tie the knot but the move
was strongly opposed by the girl`s family.
A village panchayat had also been convened recently over
the matter and the girl`s family had decided to move out of
Amargarh village and shift to Narwana, near Jind, police said.
However, Nain kept meeting the girl which annoyed the
latter`s family. Police said the girl had been kept at her
uncle`s house in Narwana some days back.
According to the victim`s mobile phone call details, he
had received the last call from the cellphone number which was
registered in the name of the girl`s cousin, they said.
Police said Nain was called to Narwana on October 16 by
the girl`s family following which he went missing and his
cellphone remained switched off.
Postmortem would be conducted at PGIMS, Rohtak, police
