A MAN killed his own daughter and son-in-law because he was against their inter-caste marriage, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Known only as Nanthish and Swathi, they got married on Aug 15 in Tamil Nadu, India, despite objections from the bride’s parents.
A few days ago, Nanthish’s brother lodged a police report that the couple were missing.
After a search, their bodies were found floating in the Kaveri River.
Police established that Swathi’s father and two relatives, on the pretext of having accepted the relationship, asked the couple to return to their hometown with them.
However, once they got into a car, the men beat up the couple, tied them up and drowned them in the river. Police arrested the three men.
