New Delhi: The Supreme Court has granted special leave to appeal in a petition against the Madras High Court’s acquittal of a man accused of killing his daughter’s husband in the Udumalpet honour killing case. The SLP was from the Tamil Nadu government. The court said the case needs consideration in detail.

The case involved a Dalit man Shankar, from Kumaralingam near Udumalpet, who fell in love with non-Dalit girl, Kausalya. They married against their parents’ wishes.

The couple was brutally attacked by a three-member gang when they were walking near Udumalpet town bus stand. While Shankar died on the spot, Kausalya survived with minor injuries. The Tirupur district session court had sentenced six people including Kausalya’s father Chinnasamy, for murdering Shankar on December 12, 2017, but had acquitted Kausalya’s mother and two others.

The Madras High Court in June had quashed the trial court’s order awarding death sentence to the five accused. The court had given them life imprisonment for a minimum of 25 years without any right to remission. The court also acquitted Kausalya’s father Chinnaswamy, from charges against him.

The lower court’s order of conviction was challenged before the high court. The investigation officer filed another appeal against acquittal of Kausalya’s mother and two others from the case.
