    What a tragical sad death!Poor fellow.May his soul rest in peace.Accused should be arrested and up to gallows.No mercy as he didnt have with his sisters husband.No human feelings ,no understanding.Important is caste ,richness and what not.How sad for his widow now?Heartfelt sympathy to the young lady.How one can do this act?:What he thought ?Cleaning the caste?No honour is back to family but it showed more miserable inability and cold heart.In this age of computer and going to moon this still ?Does his God will accept this ?Hang him immediately.
