It is unfortunate that even in today’s times of technological advancement, honour killings are rampant. In Telangana’s Nalgonda district a youth was hacked to death in broad daylight in he name of honour killing. It is like in the movie Dhadak (Originally Sairat), the debut movie of Jhanvi Kapoor where the lead pair gets killed by own family members.
Reportedly, Dalit youth called Pranay Perumalla from Nalgonda married forward caste woman Amrutha. They fell in love while studying engineering. The couple are expecting a baby soon. Pranay was hacked to death in front of his pregnant wife at Jyothi Hospital in Miryalguda.
The victim was walking out of the hospital with Amrutha when he was attacked from behind.
Amrutha’s father Maruthi Rao is a renowned builder in Nalgonda, he was against their marriage. After trying to break the marriage in several ways, he finally decided to murder Pranay. He along with Amrutha’s Uncle Sravan conspired Pranay’s murder by employing contract killers for 10 lakhs. Both Maruthi Rao and Sravan are absconding. Police are probing the incident.
