Honour killing: Man stoned to death over relationship with Dalit woman

Muzaffarnagar: In a suspected honour killing, a man involved in a relationship with a Dalit woman was stoned to death allegedly by her community members, police said.

Forty eight-year-old widower Prem Singh of Thakur caste was in a relationship with the woman for the past few years, which was opposed by her community members, they said.

Singh was cornered near the woman’s house in Umarpur village in Muzaffarnagar, on Wednesday evening and beaten to death after being attacked with bricks and stones by a group of Dalit men, Deputy SP Rajesh Kumar said.

Police have registered a case against four accused – Rishipal, Ishwar, Kala and Guddu – who are absconding and a search is going on to nab them, he said, adding, security has been tightened in the village.
