Indian man who killed daughter for 'honour' has no regrets
NEW DELHI (AFP) - The Indian father who killed his daughter and beheaded her boyfriend after they eloped has declared he feels no remorse over the "honour killings", media reports said on Friday.
The young couple from India's northern state of Haryana were beaten to death on Wednesday by the father and other relatives of the 20-year-old woman "to protect the family and village honour", the police said.
After killing the man, 22, using sticks, the attackers beheaded him. They also tried to burn the woman's body but were stopped by the police.
The woman's family disapproved of the three-year relationship because the couple belonged to the same caste and were "considered brother and sister", the police said.
