Aamir Khan is saddened by the murder of labourer Abdul Hakim, who spoke against khap panchayats on the superstar's show "Satyamev Jayate" earlier this year.

Hakim's wife Mahvish Monday alleged that her family was behind the murder of her husband, who was killed late Saturday in Bulandshahr. Hakim had married Mahvish despite resistance from their families.

Mahvish claimed that ever since the couple married in court two years ago, their families had been baying for the couple's blood. The couple had appeared Aamir's show "Satyamev Jayate" and spoke against "honour killings".

"I felt really sad when I got to know that Abdul has been attacked and killed. My whole team (of 'Satyamev Jayate') is feeling sad about it. Though their story was not shown in detail on our show, we had seen the fear that they lived with," Aamir told news channel.

He said he has talked to police about the safety of Abdul's wife and daughter and that they have assured strict action against the culprits.

"I have met the SP of Meerut. When I went to Lucknow, I had a talk with their DIG. Both have assured me that strict action will be taken against people who are responsible for it," he added.
