A woman is on hunger strike because the police refused to act on her complaint of #dowry abuse

Chandigarh, February 25, 2015.

Deepika Kukkad began a hunger strike against her husband and police because she says the police refuse to act on her complaint of dowry abuse and torture by her in-laws.  She has moved to her parents house, but wishes to return to her husband’s house with police intervention.  Married women in India often do this, holding the marriage above their own safety.  And unfortunately often get killed when they return.  We hope Deepika will seek justice in court regarding the dowry extortion which is illegal, as well as the abuse. But we hope she will decide not to return to her husband’s house.
