Brother organized sister’s murder in what the police are calling a Honour Killing

August 17, 2014 Madhya Pradesh
When 21 year old Pooja was found dead in her house, her brother claimed it was her boyfriend because of property disputes. However by mid August police investigations revealed that Pooja’s brother had hired two men to kill her boyfriend and dispose of him, and then kill her, because he did not approve of the relationship. Though the police are treating this as an “honor killing” shouldn’t we be asking if this has become a convenient “cultural” explanation for all kinds of criminally motivated killings? For all we know, couldn’t the brother be the one who had issues about property?
