Dishonour killing? Three arrested for murdering woman in TN
Nagercoil (TN): Three persons were arrested for murdering two persons, including a newly-married woman, and seriously injuring her husband in what is suspected to be a case of dishonour killing, police said Monday.
A 21-year-old woman had left home and married a man, a painter by profession and belonging to a backward community on May 7. She later went to the local police station as her brother, who was against the relationship, had threatened her. The woman`s parents also pleaded with her to return but in vain.
The policemen had pacified both the groups and sent them away but last evening the woman`s brother and two of his friends attacked her and her father-in-law, killing them on the spot. The woman`s husband who was also stabbed, rushed out of the house and collapsed on the road, bleeding. Locals rushed him to a hospital and informed the police.
Though the three tried to escape by a car to Thiruvanathapuram in Kerala, they were arrested by police at Kuzhithurai on the border.
