Jhalawar, Rajasthan: A tragic case of honour killing has surfaced in Jhalawar, where a family, infuriated by their daughter's love marriage, allegedly murdered her. The family abducted the woman from outside a bank, took her home, and killed her.

They then attempted to secretly cremate her body. However, the cremation was interrupted when the police arrived before the body was fully burned. This incident occurred in Shourti village, within the Jawar police station jurisdiction in Jhalawar district.

Manohar Thana DSP Janrail Singh reported that Shimla Kushwaha, 20, daughter of Kajori Lal Kushwaha from the Jawar police station area, had married Ravindra Bheel, son of Amrit Bheel from the same village, about a year ago against her family's wishes.

According to documents, Shimla Kushwaha and Ravindra Bheel had a registered marriage on July 17, 2023. The couple first performed a formal marriage ceremony at an Arya Samaj temple in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, and later registered their marriage at the Ghaziabad Marriage Registrar's office.

Since their marriage, the couple had been living in various places, avoiding their families. Recently, the couple had been residing in Madhya Pradesh.

On June 4, they visited the Central Bank in Harnavdashahji, Baran district, to withdraw money, which alerted the girl's family. The family arrived at the bank and forcibly took her away. Her husband later reported the incident to the Harnavdashahji police station, explaining that they had gone to the bank to withdraw money when her father, Kajori Lal, along with Meghraj, Mangilal, and a woman, assaulted him and forcibly took his wife away on a motorcycle.
