Despite strict laws and police raids, honour killings continue to occur in Bihar. A 19-year-old girl was killed by her relatives in Gopalganj, according to the most recent case. The body of the girl was discovered in a field near the house. The deceased was the daughter of Indradev Ram, a Gopalganj resident from Kotwa village. The incident occurred near the Nagar police station.
After the body was discovered, the village was filled with shock. The locals had heard that Inner Dev Ram wanted to marry his daughter Kiran. He had also seen the boy for this. However, the girl disliked that boy and desired to marry another young man. As a result, she was opposed to her father’s choice of a young man for her to marry. Kalavati Devi, the girl’s mother, was also a strong supporter of her daughter. This did not sit well with the men of the house.
Indradev Ram and his two brothers came to the house on Sunday night, according to the deceased’s mother, Kalavati Devi. They had consumed alcoholic beverages. Everyone began thrashing the girl because they were inebriated. Kalavati Devi was killed and injured when she tried to save her, and she was thrown out of the house. Kiran’s body was discovered in the field, a short distance from the house, on Monday morning. His throat had been slashed. Hardevram and his two brothers are absconding after the incident.
Sanjeev Kumar, the Sadar SDPO, has stated that the matter is being investigated. Police are conducting raids in order to apprehend the fugitive accused. Inspector Lalan Kumar of the city police station is personally involved in the case investigation. The SDPO also stated that the girl desired to marry someone else. The members of the family were not prepared for this. As a result, the issue of murder has risen to the fore. The police are looking into everything.
