Karo-Kari to be made Non-Compoundable Homocide
Petition Background (Preamble):
In most cases the accusers have little evidence to support their allegations. Since it is usually a husband, brother, father, cousin or uncle who carry out the deed the victim's family forgives the guilty party upon receiving 'blood money' and the perpetrator receives a short prison sentence.
If this is made Non-compoundable Homocide then it means that such compromises cannot be reached. Honour Killings occur in various parts of the world: India, the Middle East, the Americas, Europe and Africa.
