Describing honour killings as "cold-blooded murders", BJP on Wednesday said provisions should be made to try all such cases in fast track courts to bring the culprits to book.
"BJP has been very forthcoming from day one that honour killing is nothing but a name given to cold-blooded murder and we believe murder for any reason should be punished," party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.
He suggested all such cases of honour killings should be tried in fast track courts for speedy justice and to prevent this practice from growing.
Honour killings have reportedly been on the rise in the national capital and its neighbourhood. Three people were reportedly murdered in the last 48 hours in suspected honour killing cases in Delhi. PTI
