Tamil Nadu: On March 13, Sankar, a 22 years old graduate was killed in Udumalaipettai town of Tirupur district in Tamil Nadu on a busy marketplace in daylight in the name of honor killing.

His alleged crime was that he married a woman of the upper caste.

Honor killing, as we all know, is a shameful tradition performed in the name of the belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion, usually for reasons such as refusing to enter an arranged marriage or marrying a person from a different caste.

This couple reportedly studies in the same private engineering College in Tamil Nadu and married each other. This was not approved by the families and hence, as a result, Sankar, the husband was stabbed to death in a busy road market in broad daylight.

He died on his way to the hospital while the woman, her wife, suffered serious injuries while trying to save him.
