Andhra: Man kills daughter for marrying boy from another caste


ANI General News
A father killed his own daughter for marrying a man from another caste in Oosarapenta village in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor district on Friday.
Hemawati, 23, daughter of Bhaskar Naidu, loved Kesavulu, 25, six years ago. As Kesavulu belongs to the SC community, Hemawati's parents did not agree for their marriage.
However, Hemawati and Kesavulu married two and a half years ago, without her parents' consent. Afraid of threats from them, the couple left the village. Hemawati delivered a boy one week ago. The couple later went to their native village.
On Friday morning, the couple took the baby to the hospital in Palamaneru. When they are returning, Hemawati's father and brothers attacked them at a check post near their village.
They forcibly took Hemawati on a two-wheeler into a mango garden, tied a rope to her throat and killed her. Later they tied her hands and legs and threw the body in a nearby well.
When local people saw and shouted, the culprits ran away from the place. Later kin of Kesavulu came to know the matter and attacked Bhaskar Naidu's place. This caused a tense situation in the village.
Later, DSP Yugendhar Babu reached the spot and controlled the situation.
The police have filed a case based upon the complaint of Kesavulu and started investigating the matter.
