“Honor Killing” of a Second Year College Student by Family

November 2, 2012

Panipat, Haryana, October 28, 2012

A second year college student Indu, who married her friend and classmate Ajay Rohil, was poisoned and murdered by her family.  The family was opposed to the marriage since Ajay was of a different caste.  As they tried to hurriedly cremate Indu’s body, Ajay informed the police, and filed a complaint with the police and demanded a postmortem. The police tried to ignore the complaint but were forced to act when neighbors joined in the protest. Full report here
