Kanpur, Oct 16: The love marriage for a couple who were blessed with a five-year-old daughter, took a tragic turn in Kanpur district of Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

In a shocking case of honour killing, the family members of 20-year-old Prabha, hacked her and her mother-in-law to death and brutally chopped off her husband's (25-year-old Kuldeep) hands and legs as they were against their love marriage.

According to reports, Prabha's family was against her marriage with Kuldeep and when the couple took the step of getting married against the permission of her parents, they killed their daughter and chopped hands and legs of her husband.

The shameful incident happened when the couple had gone to their village for a function of their five-year-old daughter.

When Prabha's parents got information that their daughter is in their village, they did not even sympathise with their maternal grand-daughter Anshika and threw her in a fit of rage. She is also stated to be in a serious condition.

Now, Kuldeep, whose condition is critical, is battling for life at a hospital in Kanpur.

Police have registered a case of honour killing and have arrested two people.

According to police, Kuldeep eloped with her neighbourhood girlfriend Prabha, one and half years ago and got married.

Fearing Prabha's family, they were living in Delhi but visited their village for a function of their daughter.

After getting information about their presence in village, Prabha's family members allegedly barged into Kuldeep's house, armed with sharp weapons and killed Prabha and her mother-in-law Mamta on the spot. They cut the hands and legs of Kuldeep and fled after committing the heinous crime.
