Man kills daughter barely hours before her wedding

The Hush Post: Barely hours before her wedding was to take place, a man in Kerala killed his daughter. The man reportedly committed this heinous crime as he had grudgingly agreed for her marriage with the man she loved. The deceased, Athira, was 22-year-old.

The woman’s fiance, who is in the army, is from a different caste. Her father remained opposed to the match even though he gave his consent to the wedding, to be held on Thursday.

The NDTV reported on Friday that previous day (Thursday) a heated argument broke oiut between the deceased girl and her father and the latter, in a fit of rage, stabbed the victim several times. He kept stabbing her till she fell down. The victim was rushed to a Kozhikode hospital but declared dead on arrival by doctors.

The police have arrested the accused and are interrogating him. “A case of murder has been registered. The father was in a drunk state. We are still investigating if it was a dishonour killing or not,” NDTV quoted Malappuram District Police Chief Debesh Kumar Behera as saying.
