TN: Six, including father-in-law, sentenced to death for hacking of Dalit man”

Six persons were sentenced to death by a local court in Tamil Nadu for honour killing of a Dalit youth, Sankar, in Tirupur district in March 2016. The murder took place in a busy marketplace and was caught on CCTV cameras.

One of those sentenced to death is Chinnasamy - the father of S Kausalya whose husband Shankar was hacked to death in Tirupur in 2016.

The case triggered outrage as a video showing three men attacking Shankar and Kausalya on March 13, 2016, was telecast by TV channels. While Kausalya survived the attack, Sankar died at the hospital. Shankar, an engineering student, had married Kausalya a Caste Hindu girl, which was opposed by her parents. She now lives with Sankar's family, who are farmers.

Hailing the judgement, Kausalya said she would continue to fight even if the accused approach a higher court. "I hope this verdict would help achieve this goal", she said, sought police protection for Sankar's family and herself following the acquittal of the three accused and tension prevailed in the court premises after the verdict.

In 2011, the Supreme Court said people convicted of honour killings should face the death penalty.

Cases were registered against them under seven different sections of the Indian Penal Code and under the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

The police had filed a charge sheet against the 11 persons, including her maternal uncle Pandidurai, running to 1,500 pages.
