Death penalty for marrying outcaste: Castevirus 001RJ2008

06Jan08

Nineteen-year-old Poonam’s blank look speaks of the trauma she has suffered at the hands of her family. Her relatives, threw her into a canal at Tibbi, near Haryana’s border with Rajasthan, and left her to die. All because she, a Jat girl, married a Dalit boy. “They forcibly made me sit in a jeep and took me to the canal. I was thrown into the canal by my father and other relatives,” Poonam said.

Poonam managed to get out of the canal and hid until she was helped by strangers. The police are now searching for her relatives, who are absconding.
