'Honour' killing in UP

Sanjay Pandey, Lucknow, Nov 9, 2013, DHNS :

 In yet another suspected honour killing in Uttar Pradesh, a man allegedly shot dead his pregnant daughter for marrying her lover.

According to reports, the husband of the woman also suffered serious injuries when the couple were sprayed with bullets in Aligarh district in the state on Friday after being dragged out of a Delhi-bound private bus.

Sources said that the victim identified as Arti Singh, had married Purshottam Sharma around a year ago after a brief affair.

Arti’s family was against the marriage as Purshottam was from another caste and was already married though he had deserted his wife.

The couple, according to the sources, had been receiving threats after they had tied the nuptial knot and to avoid being killed had shifted to Delhi.

Purshottam had gone to his village to celebrate Deepawali and was on his way back to Delhi on Friday in a private bus when some assailants forced the driver of the bus to stop a few kilometers away from Aligarh town.

They then entered the bus and dragged Arti and Purshottam out and later sprayed them with bullets.
