MYSORE: Chairperson of the State Women’s Commission Manjula visited the house on Wednesday where the alleged honour killing of the assistant professor took place. However, she found the neighbours were trying to escape as they did not want to share any information. When Manjula visited the house with commission member and advocate Mythili, the house next to Smruthi, the late assistant professor was found locked. Another family residing on the ground floor of the building refused to provide details. The police opened the house to show Manjula.
“It is very unfortunate that the incident happened when the entire world was celebrating International Women’s Day. This incident is a an example of men’s atrocity on women though they are empowering economic stability and education,” she said. She added the commission will protect anybody who approaches it with problems regarding inter-caste marriage. “I will ask the city police commissioner K L Sudheer to arrest those behind the incident,” she added. Sudheer informed three teams were formed to nab the accused.
