Defending Khap Panchayats (caste councils),Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda Saturday said they dont order honour killings and most such cases involve parents or relatives of the girl or boy. There is a need to change the mindset of the people. Khap Panchayats dont order such killings, Hooda said. Anyone who takes law into their hands will be dealt with as per the law. Haryana,which has a skewed sex ratio,is infamous for such cases,most recently the one from Rohtak,where a college-going couple was allegedly killed by girls family.
