Crime Patrol: Haryana: Father kills teen daughter for refusing to stay with 50-yr-old husband (Episode 344 on 1st March 2014)

The Inside Story

Kaithal, Haryana

17-Year-Old Girl Killed by Father for Refusing Forced Marriage

From female foeticide to rape to girls being forced into unwanted marriages, incidents in India continue to highlight the plight of women. In a recent case in Kasaan village, Kaithal, Haryana, a 17-year-old girl was brutally murdered by her own father. Her crime? She refused to live with a 50-year-old man to whom she was forcibly married.

The remorseless father openly stated that his pride was more important than his daughter's life. "We know that our pride is larger than life," said Indra Singh.

The girl had sought protection at the police station, but the Panchayat intervened and forced her to return. Tragically, before any action could be taken, she was murdered. The police became involved only when her body was about to be cremated. Investigations are underway, and the girl's father and uncle have surrendered.
