India: 7 arrested in honor killing case
The Haryana police has arrested seven residents of Bhiwani’s Kaluwas village on suspicion of their involvement in the public lynching of two teenage girls on the Diwali night.
(…) All the seven villagers are relatives of Geeta and Manisha, who were brutally beaten and then burnt alive because they had dared to go out and meet their “boyfriends” when their families were busy celebrating Diwali.
Police officials, who had to literally be goaded into action in the case, said the accused had been booked for conspiracy and murder.
Terrible, eh? Just because they went out and met their boyfriends….BURNT ALIVE.
