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
