Fatehabad (Haryana), May 14 (IANS) To uphold the ‘honour’ of his family, a man in Haryana’s Fatehabad district strangulated his daughter on suspicion that she was having an extra-marital affair, the police said Wednesday. The woman, Reshma, was sleeping in her father Bhawana Ram’s house in Laloda village in Fatehabad when he killed her. Her two brothers encouraged their father as he strangulated the hapless woman.
The family suspected that Reshma, who was married for over a decade, was having an illicit relationship with her brother-in-law (sister’s husband).
The incident comes within a week of a young couple in Haryana’s Karnal district being killed by the girl’s parents for having married against their wishes.
In the latest incident, the Fatehabad police have registered a case of murder and conspiracy against Bhawana Ram and his sons.
