Urgent help required to stop honor killing, 2nd Feb, 2011

To anyone who can stop this honor killing please act now. (2nd Feb, 2011)

My cook’s(Lalit Kamti) younger brother Rupak Kamti(16 years), and his friend, Kaushal Dhobi(18-or 19 years old) study at Samastipur zilla College, and go for tuitions at Darbhanga in Bihar, IN. They are from a village Vishnupur Diha in Samastipur zilla, Bihar, IN.

Two girls (sisters, not twins, one older and one younger (16 and 17 years) from the village, young teenagers decided to get to Darbhnaga which is like a big city for them. The girls are called Preeti and Chanda Rai. Since they’re all from the same village, once the girls reached Darbhanga, they called the two boys and within a span of a few hours the village started a hue and cry about how the girls have run away. Now, the girls were scared, so they refused to come back to the village. The boys come back in the weekend anyways since they have no tuition.

The village immediately sort of zeroed in on them when they visited this weekend cause Chanda used to hang around near Kaushal at times. The villagers kept harassing them so they ran back to Darbhnaga. Now the problem is, the village has ascertained that the boys have run away with the girls, and there’s a honor killing order on them from the sarpanch. They’re looking for the teenagers to kill them.

In fear, they even married. Both are obviously underage weddings and can’t be legalized but that’s what they did in fear and to deal with immediate consequences.

If anyone can save them please call/email, I’ll give you my cook’s number, and he has his brothers number. All 4 kids are hiding in Darbhanga.

    The environment is different in both cities and villages and people from both sides need not interfere in matters of each other. For instance, some village people if they come to know about unmarried couples living together (normal occurrence in a city), they would get very very disturbed and may be tempted to write something similar as you have written.

    I am not against your writing, its good if viewed in terms of spreading awareness, but to write something like “come out and help” is totally outrageous. Also, as stated earlier, these incidences are normal in villages and and there is nothing we city people can do about it to stop it. so lets just be practical and focus on things we can do (spread awareness) rather than sitting comfortably in your chair and writing silly posts asking people to help.

    City people don’t even have time to lend a helping hand to someone bleeding on the road after a accident and you think they will make an effort to help someone from Bihar ?? Very unlikely?

    However, i appreciate your attitude to at least make an effort try to change things around you for the better. Whatever makes you tick, I wish u all the good luck.

    But then, please be beware of people from Bihar and UP, very very cunning with a straight face, should avoid trusting them.

    thank you.
