Honour killing: Family shot dead my husband, says woman

November 26, 2012 16:10 IST

The wife of the 29-year-old youth, who was allegedly shot dead in Adoli village in Bulandshehr on Thursday last, on Monday alleged that her family members were behind the death of her husband.

According to the Abdul Hakim's wife Mahvish, the victim was shot dead by her family members on November 22 after he had just entered the village along with her and their two-year-old daughter.

However, the police claimed that it was not a case of honour killing as none of the accused named in the FIR by the deceased's brother was from Mahvish side.

Mahvish had eloped with Hakim in October 2010 after which the couple got married and were staying in Delhi following opposition from the former's family, police said.

The couple was here in the village to visit Mahvish's ailing relatives.

Hakim has also participated in one of the episode of 'Satyamev Jayate', hosted by actor Aamir Khan, to speak against the the menace of honor killing.
