Dishonour killing: Engineering student killed

Rohtak: In yet another case of dishonour killing, a 22-year-old engineering student near here was beaten to death allegedly by the family of a girl he had an affair with, police said here on Thursday.

The incident took place yesterday at Sanghi village, about 25 km from here, when Deepak Sharma went to meet the girl, they said.

The girl's family members, who were opposed to their relationship, came to know of it and bludgeoned him to death, police said.
