Villagers Fear For Their Women

From the Hindustan Times:
In yet another case of people being terrorised for falling in love, residents of Daula village have alleged that the khap panchayat of Maicha village in Greater Noida has given out a diktat threatening to abduct women from their village.

The panchayat wants that the upper caste girl who eloped with lower caste boy from Daula village be sent back.

What was supposed to be a matter between two families has blown into a feud between two villages. Following the threat, many residents of Daula village have fled from their homes fearing for the safety of their daughters.
