Khap panchayats in Uttar Pradesh on Saturday said they will oppose same gotra marriages before the Supreme Court which had sought their views following a plea to curb violence against couples at the behest of such caste councils.
Amid an outcry over their
diktats against marriages in same sub-castes, a grand assembly
of self-styled caste councils today struck a defiant note
vowing to fight in courts for the seven people convicted a
fortnight ago in honour killing of a couple in Haryana.
