Father hacks is daughter and son-in-law in public for inter-caste marriage
The incident, caught on CCTV, shows the father hacking the couple on the Erragadda main road
The gruesome incident, coming close on the heels of the killing of a Dalit youth Pranay in Miryalaguda, sent shock waves through the city. Pranay was hacked to death by a hired killer for marrying an upper caste girl.
On Wednesday, Manohar Chary, a goldsmith, attacked his daughter Madhavi and her husband. Madhavi is in a critical condition while her husband B. Sandeep (21) is safe, but severely injured.
The woman is being treated at Yashoda Hospital in Somajiguda and Sandeep at a private hospital in Sanathnagar.
Sandeep, a Dalit, married Madhavi belonging to a BC community last week at a temple in Alwal.
“We accepted the marriage but Madhavi’s family opposed to it,” said Sandeep’s mother B. Ramadevi.
