In Tamil Nadu, a woman recently murdered her daughter in order to stop her from marrying a man from a different community. The victim in the matter worked as a nurse in Coimbatore and was strangled to death after her mother disagreed on her wishes to marry another man from the BC (Backward Classes). The victim and her family belong to the MBC (most backward classes).
According to reports, the victim in the matter has been identified as 20-year-old P Aruna while the accused, her own mother, was identified as 45-year-old Arumugakani. Arumugakani has been booked for the murder of her daughter, and the case is being investigated as a case of honor killing. After murdering her daughter, Arumugakani also tried to kill herself. However, she survived the ordeal, and is currently hospitalized.
According to reports, the victim Aruna was a nursing college student in Coimbatore and was in love with a man from a different community. When she confided in her mother regarding the matter, her mother asked her to come home to discuss the matter further.
Aruna came home, and to her horror, her mother started arranging her marriage to a man from their own community. This triggered a quarrel between the mother-daughter duo, which ended with the mother strangling her mother to death using her stole.
