Hisar: A Khap panchayat in Haryana‘s Hisar district has reportedly forced a couple to live as siblings. The couple has been married for over a year. Their families alleged harassment and extortion by the village head.

The families claimed that the police did not register their complaint despite several visits to the police station.

Khap panchayats are notorious for their bizarre orders and rulings, inviting even the wrath of the Supreme Court, that in April 2011 declared them illegal.
