Against the backdrop of the killing of a couple for honour in Haryana, Kumari Selja on Friday said such acts cannot be justified and there was a need to strictly deal with people indulging in such "horror killings".
RS MP and former Haryana Finance Minister Birender Singh on Saturday blamed the families of couples for honour killings which have rocked the state, saying there was no "evidence" to attribute the menace to khap panchayats.
Severe punishment awaits those involved in dishonour killings as the government intends to bring a law on the matter in the current Parliament session itself,
Home Minister P Chidambaram said in Lok Sabha on Thursday.
Murdering somebody for adopting a dress code "unacceptable" to their caste or community may come under the ambit of dishonour killings if a Group of Ministers set up to look into the scourge adopts a proposal in this regard.
