    HYDERABAD: A couple, who had eloped and married, was stoned to death in what appears to be a case of honour killing in Andhra Pradesh's Nizamabad district.

    Irate residents of Krishnajivadi village rained stones on the couple after tying them to a pole, police said on Thursday.

    The macabre incident occurred late Wednesday night in Telangana region, about 250 km from Hyderabad.

    Sunkara Srinivas, 32, belonging to the Scheduled Caste (SC), and 22-year-old Swapna Reddy, belonging to an upper caste, had eloped and married six months ago.

    Swapna's family was against the alliance as Srinivas was from a lower caste and already married. He had two children from his first wife.

    The newly married couple lived in Hyderabad for sometime as Srinivas was working as a computer operator in a private firm.

    They returned to the village three days ago. Swapna's relatives called the couple on the pretext of discussing some issues. Following an argument, they started thrashing Srinivas and when Swapna tried to protect him, they attacked her as well.

    The couple was then tied to a pole and the attackers, numbering about 30, pelted stones on them leading to their death.

    Police have registered a case and arrested three people.

    Since they are not muslims or Pakistani they won't be getting much exposure in the media. Pour souls.

    I feel the region should get united atleast over social issue for doing away with these stupid honour killings which are common in sub-continent.

    We have seen this unjustified practice already in Pakistan and other countries. Fortunatly here some organisations have worked against it and the media had played a good role to report such cases in Pakistan.

    Its good that media is now opening up to reporting honour killings in India too which is good in the long run to eleminate this practice

    A primitive and un-cultured act. Indians need to do more in order to expose this hateful crime that is happening in their country and perhaps even impose death penalty over these events. These relatives/villagefolk whatever you call them are no different from the militant problem your region faces; they take innocent lives to satisfy their bloodlust and justify it in the name of religion and the so-called "castes".
