A 25-year old pregnant woman was killed by her parents as she eloped from the house and got married to her lover against the family’s wishes.
It is a suspected case of honour killing and she was allegedly beaten to death by her parents on Sunday in Ponparappi village in Tamil Nadu.
The woman was in her seventh month of pregnancy and she got married to her lover in 2008 despite her parents’ opposition at that time.
A case has been registered against the parents and the police are searching for them.
After she eloped and got married to her lover in 2008, her parents started searching for her and finally traced her. They forced her to come back with them and got her married to another person of their choice.
But she went back to her first husband and stared living with him. She became pregnant only seven months ago. Her parents again went to Ponparappi and warned her to abort the baby and come back with them.
As she refused to their intention, she was beaten to death. Police suspect this murder to be a honour killing.
