Honour killing: Police arrest father, kin for murdering daughter


Ramanagara, Oct 17 (IANS): In a dramatic turn of events, a case of gang rape turned out be case of honour killing with the arrest of victim's father and her elder brother along with her minor brother on Friday in Magadi.

This case made social media highlights as it coincided with the Hathras rape case. As a result, the Karantaka government even handed over the case Bengaluru Rural Superintendent of Police (SP), Ravi Channennavar, in the wake of Ramanagara SP S. Girsh testing Covid positive.

According to the police, the deceased identified as Hemalata (19) was a resident of Bettadahalli village in Magadi Taluka of Ramanagara district.

Her father, Krishnappa, filed a missing complaint on October 9, but on October 10 he filed a complaint of gang rape and murder. This had led to an outrage by upper caste and dominant Vokkaliga community on social media to lash out at the lower caste groups.

Acting swiftly, the state government directed neighbouring district Bengaluru SP, Channannevar to take over the case four days ago.

Soon after he took over the case, Magadi police started probing into various angles, including honour killing.

Speaking to IANS, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) of Magadi taluka, Omprakash said, "It was a challenging case as the family members had destroyed the evidences. She was killed using stone by her elder brother Chetan and her father Krishnappa, who had taken her to their farm to convince her not to shame their family by going out with her boyfriend, Puneet, who allegedly belonged to lower caste."

While the father was convincing the girl, her brother took a stone and hit her on the head and her younger brother (a minor) gave assistance in buring the body in their own farm.

The police have registered a case and are further investigation is on.

    Really disgusting and furious. Heartless father. At the most he could have given her the share of her and send her with the boy she liked. What has he gained now? Neither peace of mind nor his prosperity and worst of all his son's too have seen the father and taken part in this cruelty.

    This holds mirror to our countries caste system, we have to move ahead as times change.
    Culture is important, caste must not be used to belittle or insult others.

    This case calls for strictest of hanging of father and life terms for the son.
    As a lesson for those who take laws into their own hands.

    Some people, even today, believe that to regain family honor. the person who shames the family, should be killed. The only method to rectify the honor, wife, daughter or sister is killed. They think blood cleanses honor. Death is the price the girl paid for love. The monsters who kill for honor, do not have feeling of guilt or shame. Some panchayats in some places in India are upholding such a practice.

    6 Million Jews were killed in gas chamber by Hitler. It was possible to do that, because 60 million Germans kept quiet. Unless concerted effort is made by our leaders, this practice will continue. Even a professor in Mumbai, when asked about honor killing in his village replied "It is the right thing done, when the girl crossed the Laxman Rekha". What a corrupt mentality ? Our leaders have to break the silence and see that no more honor killing is done.

    Vikhas Mangalore,solving how?Same way as this family did?Better to solve this as all get together and each family go against such superstitions ,not acting as upper caste and lower ones.Not kill your own blood and flesh because girl moved around with boy friend.killing is a big number.and it again is a shame to family .Noone will this in their own family.Now the father and brothers have murdered and won nothing,instead got themselves as a lowered . Noone will respect such people.Such a horrible mord done by own family is out of anybodys thinking.Poor girl ,they could have taken her to another place to divert her mind.or convince her to change mind.what if she married Father should be happy if his child is happy.Best is now put all of them in the same grab and close the matter.May the soul rest in peace atleast above in Heaven which she didnt have in this world.

    Instead of condemning the incident your are painting it with communal color? Tell us which community has no caste or subsect system.
    Forget marriages, there are some sects in other communities who vows to eliminate each others from the planet earth!
