    A MOVE TO CURB HONOUR KILLINGS

A MOVE TO CURB HONOUR KILLINGS

09 August 2017

Overview

In a move that must set an example to the Govts in other States as well, the Madurai and Salem City Police have formed special cells to protect couples in inter-caste marriages and curb honour killings and hate crimes.

Detail

The move came as a response to a HC verdict that came over a year ago in relation to the case of B. Dilip Kumar v Secy. to Govt, Department of Home, wherein the death of the Petitioner’s wife was alleged to be an instance of honour killing and the same was ordered by the Court to be probed by the CBI. The Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front, an Organization working towards the eradication of caste-based atrocities, had filed a petition in the Madras High Court on the matter, and Directions were passed by the Court to take steps to curb honour killing instances. Though late, the Madurai and Salem City Police have set up a separate cell to deal with matters concerning honour killings, related atrocities, and to ensure protection to couples in inter-caste marriages from threats from their communities. Separate Officers from different Departments within the Police Force have been looped in to receive complaints from couples facing threats/issues and to oversee the supervision of the cell’s functioning.
