NALGONDA: Is the notorious Khap panchayat culture as rampant in the State as it is in Haryana? It seems so. A day after a woman was ex-communicated for seeking alimony from her divorced husband at Bheemili in Visakhapatnam, a young man reportedly committed suicide after being ostracised at a village in Nalgonda district on Sunday.

Shaik Sayyed (28), a daily-wage worker, was found hanging from a tree in the fields outside Motkuru in Nalgonda district this morning. His widow Gore Bi lodged a complaint with the police, stating that Sayeed had ended his life following the family’s humiliation in the village.

Going into the details, Gore Bi, a farm hand, had an argument with a fellow worker on Friday and the latter took the matter to the notice of the village elders. She had complained that she was insulted by Gore Bi and demanded justice. The village elders, including Gore Mia and Razz Mohammad, summoned Gore Bi Saturday morning but she did not turn up.

Social Boycott is a Criminal Offence under Indian Laws1

The Village Elders along with the Villagers should be prosecuted under relevant loss as well as for abating suicide of Shaik Sayyed.

Hope, the District Administration and the local police wake up and act, accordingly!
