In yet another case of honour killing reported from Western Uttar Pradesh, a brother beheaded his own sister for eloping with a man and marrying him against family’s will.
Significantly, after beheading her own sister at a nearby field, the brother returned home and waited for the police to arrest him. When police arrested him on Saturday morning, he was sitting outside the house with blood-soaked knife in his hand.
A resident of Zakir Colony in Lisadi Gate area of Meerut, Gulfasaan alias Gullu had an affair with Abid of the same colony for the past one year. Both wanted to get married but Gulfasaan’s father and brother were against their marriage.
They had put a lot restriction and warned the girl not to meet Abid. About two months ago, both got an opportunity to meet and ran away from their home. Later, both got married and started living in nearby Lakkhipura area.
Her father Kallu Gazi and brother Aas Mohammad were very annoyed with her eloping with Abid whom they disliked. About a week ago, Aas Mohammad had publicly announced in the colony that he would behead her sister for daring to go against the family members.
