Today's Anniversary:
Asha Saini and Yogesh Jatav
died on June 16th, 1999

19yo Asha from India fell in love with a 19yo boy from her neighborhood, Yogesh Jatav. He was an orphan living with his aunt and uncle, and worked as a driver. She was a school drop out, helping her family with their vegetable selling business. However, Yogesh belonged to a Scheduled Caste, lower social class than Asha. When her parents discovered that, they tortured and killed both teens by electrocution. "She was crying loudly. She was pleading, 'Kill me, but please don't hurt him.' She loved him and they wanted to get married," a neighbor said.
