April 19, 2011
Two women, widows, reportedly in a same-sex lesbian relationship, were bludgeoned, battered, and beaten to death by the relatives of one in a reported honor killing, while hundreds of their fellow villagers looked on. No one came to the aid of the two women, who lived in the Ranila village of Haryana, India.
"We have killed them as they were spoiling the image of our family and bringing a bad name to our community. It was necessary to save the honor of our family," one of the confessed murderers told police.
