MYSORE:� Chairperson of the State Women's Commission Manjula visited
the house on Wednesday where the alleged honour killing of the
assistant professor took place. However, she found the neighbours were
trying to escape as they did not want to share any information. When

Mythili,� the house next to Smruthi, the late assistant professor was
found locked.� Another family residing on the ground floor of the
building refused to provide details. The police opened the house to
show Manjula.

"It is very unfortunate that the incident happened when the entire
world was celebrating International Women's Day. This incident is a an
example of men's atrocity on women though they are empowering economic
stability and education," she said.� She added the commission will
protect anybody who approaches it with problems regarding inter-caste
marriage.� "I will ask the city police commissioner K L Sudheer to
arrest those� behind the incident," she added. Sudheer informed three
teams were formed to nab the accused.
