Nilam KataraSpecial Mention (New Delhi, India) 2007
NEELAM KATARA – For a mother, what can be worse than the death of her son ? Ask, Neelam– she knows! Her 24-year old son Nitish didn’t just die – he was so brutally battered. It was ‘Honour-killing’ related to a love affair of Nitish with his classmate.
She waged a furious 14-year war in the Courts in face of the high and mighty Yadavs turning various evidences hostile, including the girl concerned…
But finally, truth prevailed at the Supreme Court where the accused were sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Indeed, hell hath no fury than a mother snatched of her son…!
