Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh), June 01:In an alleged attempted "honour killing", a man poured acid on his daughter and threw her into a canal for planning to marry a man from another religion Tuesday, police said. The girl is in critical condition in hospital.

Gulistan, 18, daughter of Asghar Ali of Charaura village in Bulandshahr district, 350 km from Lucknow, fell in love with Ravinder, 20, who ran a medical store in the village and often came to their house to deliver medicines.

The couple eloped 10 days back but were traced to Delhi and Gulistan was taken back to the village. Her parents then pretended that they had agreed to let her marry Ravinder and asked her to come with them to Delhi to buy clothes for the marriage.

The girl left with her father and brother. When they reached near the upper Ganges canal on Grand Trunk Road, they stopped and dragged her out. First they poured acid on her face, strangulated her and then threw her in the canal. Assuming that she had died, they left the place.

However, Gulistan revived in the water and shouted for help. Some local boys of nearby villages, playing there, rescued her and informed police, who admitted her to hospital.

Asghar has been arrested and a search is on for his son, Superintendent of Police (City) J.K. Sahi said.

"On the spot from where the girl was rescued, she said her father was annoyed over her love affair with the local Hindu boy but when her statement was recorded before the magistrate in the hospital, she shifted from her original statement made before the police and said after getting angry at her father’s objection, she poured the acid on herself," Sahi said.

It seemed she was trying to mislead police with her declaration, he added.

Sahi said a case under section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered and investigations are on.

car 313 in which world you

car 313 in which world you are living, 91% of honour killings in world commited by muslims. our media dont show it , that is different matter. go and search the reports.

in india rizwanur case was given too much publicity whereas rajneesh case was burried even though he died in police custody(srinagar).

good

It is the lesson for the muslim girls if they marry non muslim they have punishnment here, and hereafter

shame on you

Only do the girls have to be punished? not you males? if the religion is whatchamacallits then is equal for all, because, to be various for the girls? doesn't the Quran say these things that you say muslim, womens does not have the feelings? the rights are equal for all, (men and women) you cannot in honor of the religion kill the girls. because the religion does not give this permission. if it gives it then demonstrate it. then also the men must be murdered if they marry a not muslim one.

to jez

dear jez
let us not bury our heads in the sand just like the muslims. it happens among the hindus too. ever heard of khap panchayat and death sentences. in our country honor killing is as common among hindus as it is among the muslims.

Honour?

How people can do something like this to anyone, let alone their own child, boggles my mind.

Islam! The religion of

Islam! The religion of peace.
