A girl was allegedly burnt alive by her family members after she refused to marry according to their wishes. Puja had objected to marrying the boy chosen by her father. The murder has sent shockwaves through the village in Hasanpur Kalan, a day before wedding bells were about to toll.

And before she was set ablaze, the girl was forced to drink large quantities of a de-worming liquid used for cattle. Then her father and brother dragged her out of the house and forcibly pushed her underneath a cow dung mound and set it on fire. The girl’s cries were muzzled by the crackling flames and the weight of the dung pile. And shocked villagers remained mute spectators to the macabre dance of death. The police, however, claimed the girl had died of consuming cattle de-worming syrup.

Another news that makes one say fuck everything about everything.
