Killed for Eloping: Girl Lynched by Family, Boy Beheaded in Haryana Village

Two normal young adults wanted to elope because their parents did not approve of their relationship. The girl was an art student and the boy was pursuing a technical degree. Their parents persuaded them to come back and promised not to do any harm. After returning home, they were both tortured for hours. The girl was beaten to death in public. The boy had his arms and legs broken before he was beheaded and tossed in the public square.┬áThe girl’s family was allegedly caught in the act of cremating her when the police arrived. Relatives of the boy and the girl are on the run. What is insane is that these medieval-style killings are common occurrences. It was done in the name of “Family honor” because local laws forbid marriage within the same village.
