Pune: A 20-year-old man, Tushar Prakash Pisal, was shot and critically injured at Chandani Chowk, at Hinjewadi in Pune, on Wednesday, in yet another honour killing in the state this month. Tushar had recently married Vidya Taware. However, Vidya’s family was opposed to this match as Tushar was from a lower caste. On Wednesday, Pisal and his friends Tanaji and Baban were returning from a relative’s wedding on their motorcycles. When they reached the now closed petrol pump in Chandani Chowk, Tushar found himself surrounded by Vidya’s uncle, Raju Taware, her brother Akash, cousin Sagar Taware and his friend Sagar Palwe.

Raju fired five bullets at Tushar with a pistol, shooting him in the chest, stomach and back. The accused then hurled abuses at Tushar and fled the spot.  Tushar is in serious condition and being treated at a private hospital in Hinjewadi. A case of murder has been registered against Raju Tawre, Akash Tawre, Sagar Tawre and Sagar Palwe under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.  On May 1, a woman and her husband were set ablaze, allegedly by her father and relatives in Nighoj village in Ahmednagar district as they were opposed to the couple’s marriage, police said on Monday.

Mangesh Chandrakant Ranasing, 23, and his wife Rukmini Rama Bharathiya, 23, were set ablaze as they had married despite being from different castes. While Rukmini died of burn injuries at a Pune hospital on May 5, Mangesh is battling for life with over 40 per cent burns.
