Angry relatives murder daughter & lover in honour killing

A young couple have been killed in the now popular honour killing in India for falling in love.

Kasturi and Basavaraj are victims of honour killing

Another round of honour killing was uncovered in Hanchinahal village in Koppal district of South India, when a 24-year-old woman and her 28-year-old lover boy, were allegedly murdered by the woman's brothers who did not like the fact that their sister was in love with a man they did not approve of.

According to Bangalore Mirror, the two who have been identified as Kasturi and Basavaraj, had who eloped two months ago when the pressure was getting too much but the woman's brothers traced them to the rented house they were living and killed them before fleeing the scene.

Kasturi was in love with Basavaraj for many years, but her parents had her married off to a much older man in Hubballi a few months ago. Unhappy with the marriage, Kasturi returned to her parents' house within a few weeks and eloped with Basavaraj. Her parents traced her, counselled her and sent her back her husband's before she fled again, some two months ago.

This time, Kasturi and Basavaraj rented a house in Bengaluru. Basavaraj, a tailor, joined a garment outlet in the city. Kasturi's brothers Hanumantharaya visited the couple at their home in Hesaraghatta. At around 7 pm, they had dinner and slept. At midnight, Hanumantharaya allegedly stabbed the couple and killed them.
