n yet another case of susepcted honour killing, a man who had married an upper caste girl, was allegedly abducted and killed by his in-laws, police said here today.

The body of Raja Ram, a Majhabi Sikh, who had married Manjit Kaur, who belonged to the Ramdasia sect, against the wishes of the latter's family, was recovered from a railway track near Dhuri on Sunday, they said.

Realising that tempers were running high in the girl's family over their marriage, the deceased had taken a house on rent at Sangrur and the couple had been living together.

On August 27 Raja Ram left his house to purchase vegetable from the market but didn't return.

Hari Ram, father of the deceased, reported the matter to police alleging that his son had been kidnapped by his daughter-in-law's uncle and his associates.

Police have registered a case of kidnapping and murder against the girl's family members after the youth's body was recovered from the tracks yesterday.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/hard-talk/32067-man-killed-marrying-upper-caste-girl.html

Preliminary investigations have revealed that Raja Ram' body was thrown at the track after he was murdered.

Raja Ram's widow sought police protection apprehending danger to her life before leaving Sangrur for the cremation of her husband at village Ubhawal.

Both are actually Dalits even then the family was against the marraige perhaps due to economic disparities .

The problem is media in India just turn every inter caste killing into killing of lower caste person by upper caste without realising the fact that these days lower and backward caste also do lots of killing.People just want there children marry into there own caste.

There are so many examples of news articles with these blatant factual errors. And they create, through the error, emotional responses. IMHO it is right to become emotional about the issue of honor killing. But the energy is misplaced, when the issue of caste is brought into it.

I find these examples nearly every day. And just wonder what is going on with the media. It does not matter if the publication is considered high quality or a rag. This is also on the increase.

Thanks
