A warm love story ended in cold-blooded murder that stemmed from caste-bias and honour. The tragedy that befell Amrutha and Pranay shook the southern state of Telangana. On 14 September, about 150 kms away from the main city of Hyderabad in Miryalguda, 24-year-old Pranay was hacked to death in broad daylight in the name of honour. He left behind a 21-year-old widow and an unborn child.
But for Amrutha’s father, Maruthi Rao, who belonged to Vysya caste, loving a Dalit man was nothing short of a crime.
Listen in to know how Rao planned the final attack and how love was crushed in the name of caste.
