The bodies of Sunita Devi (L), 21, and her partner Jasbir Singh, 22, lie on the ground after they were killed by villagers in an “honour killing” in Ballah village in the northern Indian state of Haryana May 9, 2008. Growing economic opportunities for young people and lower castes in Haryana have made “love marriages” more common, experts say, and the violent repression of them has risen in tandem as upper caste Jat men fight to hold on to power, status and property.

The very first picture in your photo series from the “honor killing” has a date in prominent gold letters in the lower right quadrant, 01/01/2003. Could this be a picture of convenience, and not the actual victims of the topic story? The other photos in the series seem to be authentic. Perhaps the date is a typo?
No, this is the right photo. The 2003 date was the result of the person who took it not having properly set the digital date on the camera: GBU Editor
