The social media post by the daughter of a BJP MLA seeking protection from her own family highlights the reality of caste obsession still prevalent in India. Sakshi Misra, 23, is the daughter of Rajesh Misra, a legislator from Bareilly. She and her husband, who is from a scheduled caste, have asked the Allahabad High Court for police protection. Ravish Kumar also takes a look at incidents of brutal violence, that have taken place in the recent past, by family members of couples who got married outside of their caste. (Audio in Hindi)
