In India, there have been numerous murder cases stemming from unapproved marriages.
In one case, police registered a case against a father after he killed and cremated his own daughter.
It was revealed that the killing happened after the man found out that his daughter had a love marriage. He was angered that she ran away from home and married a young man from a different caste.
Police have identified the main suspect as Ram Singh, however, police also registered a case against several other people for their roles in the murder.
The victim had been a class 12 student when she got into a relationship with a boy from Haryana. He was from a different caste but she still loved him.
On March 29, 2020, the two lovers ran away from home and got married.
However, they were caught by the police as they had breached lockdown rules.
Both families were called and were told about what happened.
The young woman’s family were angered and brought her back home where they locked her in a room.
Her father, Ram Singh, considered his daughter’s love marriage to be disrespectful. On April 1, 2020, he and his accomplices killed her.
They later cremated her body before the sun came up and her ashes were collected in the evening.
