The verdict in the Shankar murder case is a warning bell and deterrent to those attempting to indulge in ‘honour killing’, Shankar’s widow Kausalya has said.

Reacting to the judgment, where six persons, including her father Chinnasamy, were awarded death sentence by the Tirupur Principal District and Sessions Court, Kausalya welcomed the verdict and said it would be an example for all.

“Justice is rendered for blood shed by Shankar and the verdict has reestablished my trust in the judiciary,” she said, vowing to continue her fight till her mother Annalakshmi, uncle Pandidurai and Prasannakumar got punished. She said she would appeal against their acquittal in the higher court.

Seeking protection to her and her family, Kausalya also demanded a legislation to prevent recurrence of such `honour killing and instill fear among those trying to oppose inter-caste marriage’.
