Woman Sets Herself and her 3-year-old Daughter on Fire After Dowry Harassment

Amritsar, April 07, 2012

For many women in India giving birth to a daughter is a nightmare, because their husbands and in-laws start torturing them.  In many cases women are killed for giving birth to daughters [See News reports here]

To avoid this kind of violence, women often kill their own daughters after giving birth to them [See News reports here]

However, Jagroop Kaur of Amristar, unable to bear the abuse over more dowry demands from her husband, set fire to herself and her 3-year-old daughter, killing both.  No arrests have been made. Report here.
