Greetings from PVCHR.


Please refer to the news in the link and the attached report:

 Father and Uncle burn daughter to death for refusing to marry

Meerut:  In a suspected case of honour killing, an unmarried girl was allegedly burnt to death by her father and uncle for refusing to marry the chosen groom at Hasanpur village in Kithaur district here, police said today.

Pooja was dumped in a silo and set ablaze yesterday by her father Iqbal and his brother after she refused to marry, police said.

The deceased Pooja and her elder sister Jyoti were to be married today, however, they were unhappy with their respective matches and rejected the alliance last night following which their relatives beat the girls, police said.

Apparently upset over the beating, Pooja allegedly consumed poison after which her father and uncle burnt her alive in a silo instead of taking the girl to a hospital, police added.

The girl's body has been recovered from the silo and has been sent for the post mortem, they said, adding, the efforts are on to trace the absconding culprits.

Sir, on behalf of PVCHR, I request you to look into the matter and take necessary action against the perpetrator of this heinous crime.  


With regards,
