Honour killing: Look out notice against absconding accused
KT NEWS SERVICE
SRINAGAR, Dec 4 : Police has issued a lookout notice against an absconding accused in an alleged honour killing case.

The notice has been issued against Fayaz Ahmad, cousin and brother-in-law of the deceased Ameera. The 21-year-old woman died under suspicious circumstances at her husband's home at Sever Malgund village of Lolab in north Kashmir's Kupwara district on February 16.

A police spokesman said that Kupwara police during the investigation of the case cracked the mystery and arrested five persons so far involved in the murder including the father and the brother of the deceased. However, Fayaz Ahmad Shah is still at large.

“Action under section 87, 88 CrPC has been initiated against the absconder, and any person giving information leading to his arrest will be suitably rewarded. The absconder is Fayaz Ahmad Shah is 29 years old medium built, 5-feet and 8 inch high having fair complexion and bearded,” the spokesman said.

A national daily quoted Tariq Ahmad, the Station House Officer, as saying that the case took lot of twists and turns. “Finally, it came to fore that it was her family who killed her for honour. We have, so far, arrested five persons in the case, including father, brother, husband and a cousin of the girl," he said

Police said the young woman, belonging to an upper caste family, was in love with a man of the other caste. He was a teacher and lived in the neighbouhood.

"Some days before her marriage and subsequent death, the woman had eloped from her home to live with the man she loved. But she was sent back by his family with the promise that they will approach her father properly for marriage. When she returned home, she was forcibly married to her cousin," Tariq said.

Police revealed that the man - with whom she had an affair - had to spend 10 months in jail along with eight of his family members after the relatives of the woman accused them of murder.

"She died a day or two after her family forcibly married her. Her family killed her. Medical reports state the cause of death as poisoning and asphyxiation," the SHO said.

The officer stated that the person, whom she loved, and his family had to face an "unsympathetic administration and biased police investigation". A special investigation team of the district administration had blamed the man for the death.

"The case turned upside down when we found some missing links. A re-investigation of the case made it possible," Tariq said.
