Muzaffarnagar: On the directives of a
local court, the police has filed a case of kidnapping against
relatives of a rape victim, who went missing and is suspected
to be killed in the name of honour.

An FIR has been filed against Brahampal and
Baleshwari, the victim`s uncle and aunt, on the directives of
the court, after the girl failed to appear in the court in May
this year, Deputy SP Shiva Ram said.

According to police officials, the girl had eloped
with her boyfriend Dinesh in 1996. The couple was later traced
following which a case of abduction and rape was registered
against Dinesh by her family.

When the case came up for hearing 14 years later in
May this year, the girl was found missing with the police
suspecting that she was killed for `honour` by her family.

The case against Dinesh and three other accused will
come up for hearing on October 4, 2010.
