In another case of honour killing in Tamil Nadu, a person hacked to death his sister and her husband. The dastardly act took place at Kumbakonam in Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu. The deceased have been identified as Saranya (24) and her husband Mohan (31). Saranya, who hails from a dalit family, married Mohan, who belonged to Naicker caste after a love affair of five months. Saryanya’s brother Sakthivel (31) wanted her to be married off to his friend, Ranjith (28) of Devanagiri. However, Saranya insisted on marrying Mohan which infuriated her brother. Police said that Shakthivel invited them for dinner at the residence and after the feast hacked both of them to death.
